River City Grant Writing was established in May of 2018 when I was able to meld my lifelong passion for serving and supporting the compassionate people of the world with my extensive business background. No matter what profession I was in, I found a way to help. Fourteen years in the mortgage industry found me spending a lot of time teaching homeownership classes at a Grand Rapids-based non-profit. In 2011 my career took a very different direction, and I found my true calling; working with children and adolescents.

This was when I took a director-level administrative job at the Gerald R. Ford Job Corps Center in Grand Rapids where I spent the next 6 ½ years working with disadvantaged youth ages 16-24. When I left Job Corps in early 2018, I began to look for my next adventure and was inspired when watching the evening news. A story on Grand Rapids based charity outlined their financial struggles and announced they were planning to close for good in April. I began to see the need for non-profits to obtain additional funding from multiple sources. Next, a chance encounter with a former Job Corps colleague directed me on my path, and a few weeks later, River City Grant Writing was formed.

The vast majority of River City Grant Writings’ clients are non-profit organizations. For-profit companies can benefit from strategic planning services and limited grant opportunities. No matter the type of organization you are affiliated with, River City Grant Writing only works with organizations that do not discriminate on the basis of race, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, sex, age, religious affiliation, or disability status.

The most success comes to organizations looking to establish a long-term relationship to grow their organization. By becoming a client of River City Grant Writing, you become a part of a limited number of clients. This ensures you receive the dedication it takes to understand the inner workings of your mission and operations. To fully reap the benefits of a consulting relationship, the organization must be willing to dedicate the time to see short and long-term strategies implemented.
