What did Boys & Girls Clubs of Tucson need?

Jennifer helped Boys & Girls Clubs of Tucson conduct research on a particular topic or question.

Why is this project important?

Dollars are finite, and more than ever before, applying for grants has become incredibly competitive. Our grants manager is a part-time staff member with a limited amount of time/resources to dedicate to research, writing, reporting, etc. By helping us to conduct our research and craft the most compelling grants proposals, you'll be helping us to secure additional funding for 10,000+ at-risk kids in Tucson and Southern Arizona.

This project will save us $5,239, allowing us to provide scholarships for at least 261 youth in need to attend the Clubs for an entire school year, free of charge.

What did Jennifer have to offer?

I've worked in non-profit for 20 years. Much of my work is guided through sound research, data, and analytics to make informed decisions.

I've worked in non-profit for 20 years. Much of my work is guided through sound research, data, and analytics to make informed decisions.

I use this foundation in my volunteer work. We'll work together to determine which type of information suits your needs. I will also provide suggestions and supplemental resources.

My strengths are in the operational sphere such as program design, evaluation plans, data collection/analysis (surveys and interviews), and prospect research.

I approach each project as if it's a paid project which includes prep work, work outlines, and weekly updates. Non-profit engagement is crucial in completing the project to your expectations.

My goal is not just to help you with the work, but also build your capacity such as training guides, resource database, and helpful articles so you walk away with more than a completed project.

What did they have to say?

'Exceeded expectations' doesn't even begin to describe my experience working with Jennifer. In fact, one of the first things I said to her after she shared the first round of research was, "So THIS is what it's like to work with a professional!" To say I am blown away by what she was able to accomplish in such a short amount of time would be a severe understatement. Jennifer restored my faith in volunteerism (and humanity!) with this project. Her communication, attention to detail, research abilities, and overall professionalism are unmatched. The work she completed would have easily taken me months of on-and-off research, and there's no way I would have been as thorough or as savvy as she was. Hands down, the best volunteer I’ve ever worked with to date – even beyond my career with the Boys & Girls Club. Cannot recommend Jennifer enough!

Kristyn was friendly and responsive. She knew exactly what she wanted but was also open to new ideas the research turned up about their youth programs. Her feedback to each completed step of the project was inspiring and encouraged me to keep working and giving even more of my skills and expertise. I look forward to working with them on another project.
