We Offer Grant Writing and Capacity Building Training for Nonprofits


Kim provides group and one-on-one trainings on the following topics:

Grant Seeking: How do you know where to find grant opportunities? How do you know if you are eligible to apply? We can answer these questions and many more. We will teach you grant seeking tips for your organization; how and where to find grant opportunities, how to decide which grants to apply for, how to determine the amount you will request, and what grant seeking tools and online databases are available.

"Kim is amazing to work with because she is calm under constant pressure. As a grant writer, deadlines are constantly looming and Kim is always on time with extremely well thought-out, well written, and well researched submissions. Kim is also an amazing writer. Somehow she has mastered the ability to cover all the bases and still be brief, concise, passionate, and persuasive. Yes, I'm a true fan of Kim Joyce and highly recommend her."

-Denice Riffey - Marketing Manager at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona


"Kim is a highly professional grant writer and process manager. She works well with line staff, management and executives to get the job done on time, every time. She is a pleasure to work with and her expertise is above and beyond her peers. I highly recommend her for grant writing and management."

-Leslie Zschokke - Business Development


"Kim worked with me on one of my clients' accounts. She wrote grants and maintained the grant research documentation. Kim was not only expert at researching, prospecting and cultivating grantors, she is a great writer and knows how to position a grant for success. She's a delight to work with, self starter, needs only what one would expect a grant writer to need (data, budgets), is always on time and on top of the grant process. I would highly recommend Kim Joyce.

-Nancy Stern - Founder-N C Stern PR, LLC


I have followed the outstanding grant-related work of Kim Joyce since her days at Foundation for Blind Children. She is observant, diligent, analytical, intuitive, and brings the entire development office set of skills to serve her company's clients. I love to team with Kim because she is a wonderful balance to my own lack of patience and temperament. Kim is dedicated to her clients and works hard seven days per week to identify potential funding opportunities, gather the required information and deliver award winning grant applications. I highly recommend this extremely qualified grant professional, colleague and best friend

-Dr. Bev Browning - VP of Client Capacity Building - eCivis, Inc. and Grants Industry Consultant/Trainer/Keynote


Kim Joyce has a tremendous understanding of the entire fundraising process and the need to create and maintain a diverse source of funders. That is one of the ways that Kim is unique in providing her excellent grantwriting services. Kim does not "shotgun" proposals, but instead works alongside her clients to help them develop long-term relationships with their foundation, corporate and other donors. She also is an excellent writer with an excellent record of funded grants. I highly recommend Kim to anyone looking for a quality grant writer and fundraiser with a proven and successful track record.
