I have focused my time in building this business on my clients – and not as much as I should on our own outcomes. Business mentors would yell at me for not keeping careful track of our progress…so this year I have created a year-end recap for each of our current clients.
I will be sending those updates to everyone following the REDC announcements in early December, so I can’t share details yet… But I can give you a sneak peek at some of the overall numbers now (because I am so excited about our success that I can’t keep it to myself!)
For current clients only, we have been able to obtain nearly $6 million in awards over the last three years! (additionally, nearly $1M for clients we no longer are working with).
Our clients have paid us (in total monthly flat fees) an average of only 4.5% of what they have been awarded.
And we are consistently at a 55-60% approval rating or above for applications submitted.
I should put here that lawerly disclaimer that past results do not indicate future success and that each client and each grant is different… but the numbers tell the story that we are consistently able to help our clients fund projects that help our community.
I am proud of the work we do and proud of my team – Emily Barber and Sarah Hunt.
Thank you to all of our clients who believe in our work as much as we believe in your projects!
