Hiring Rick Holton to handle our grant writing over the past year has been one of our best fundraising decisions. In the nine months leading up to the end of our last fiscal year, $307, 357 or 83% of his grants had been funded, and we had raised more than $1.2 million, exceeding our overall goal by 38%. When we hired Rick, we needed results fast. Through his successful grant writing, he has given us everything we needed and more.

Communicating effectively with the written word used to be a struggle for me. Rick Holton showed me how to organize my thoughts and prepare written documents that communicate those thoughts effectively. Now I almost enjoy writing.
Public papers and presentations are effective marketing tools, but finding time to prepare them is often difficult. Rick was able to take my thoughts and ideas and quickly turn them into effective and well-received conference papers.

Rick Holton did an excellent job of taking our thoughts and presenting them in a clear and concise way that communicated exactly what we needed.
The proposal that he wrote for us helped us raise $450,000 in funding from state and local agencies to start a new branch office. We look forward to using him in the future!
