“I've known Rachel through the professional grants community for many years, so I'm very familiar with her background and expertise, and I remember when she first started talking about starting up her consulting business. When I later had the need and opportunity to secure additional resources to help with my organization's grant-seeking activities, she was the first person I thought of. I knew we'd be smart to supplement our team with hers -- and that decision has exceeded our expectations. We have contracted with RBW Strategy for the past few years, and they have been critical partners in our success. The firm's combination of deep grants knowledge and project management skills are the kind of one-two punch needed for savvy and effective grantseeking. KJ Lucas-Matos and Lauren Schultz have both provided excellent support and assistance with Federal and foundation prospecting and grant writing. They are both tremendous listeners (which is critical when working with our grants office and busy project teams across different departments), terrific communicators, incredibly professional, patient, client-focused, action-oriented, and deadline-driven. Whether working the mechanics of preparing a proposal or managing the dynamics and relationships involved in guiding a project team to prepare one, Rachel and her colleagues have that special knack for navigating between necessary details and the big picture -- understanding where and when to dig in and where and when to back off. They are excellent stewards, guides, and "cat herders" through the application preparation process. I have complete confidence in their willingness and ability to "plug in" wherever we need them -- and their commitment and ability to help us generate better and stronger applications. Rachel is a top-notch grant professional and has built a firm of colleagues who meet both her high standards and mine. I can't speak highly enough of Rachel and her firm, and I'd recommend them without hesitation or qualification.”
