My Clients and Their Success

South Hero Library Foundation

​I have worked with the South Hero Library Foundation for the last two and a half years on their capital campaign to raise $1.5 million from the community to build a new library without asking taxpayers for a bond. We are almost there and broke ground recently at the site at 260  US Route 2 in South Hero. Look for our grand opening in 2019.​​

The Veterans Place

I worked with the dedicated staff of the Veterans Place to help them secure over $400,000 in VA funding to continue their mission of helping homeless veterans find their way back to society and sobriety.

"Mary's professional grant writing skills and knowledge were instrumental in helping us submit the best product possible and in the time frame we were allowed. I have no doubt Mary would be a valuable asset to your company and I give my highest recommendation. " Karen Boyce, The Veterans Place

City Hotel Cafe Meals on Wheels

I am working with the Barre-based Meals on Wheels program to help them build a sustainable future through community support. This organization provides over 40,000 meals each year to seniors and people with disabilities.
