“Kim Joyce is a Rockstar in the world of nonprofit consulting! She knows her craft well from the idea and strategy stage through grant identification, submission, reporting—and most importantly, relationship building with the people who run foundations. As a fundraising consultant who has been practicing for more than 15 years, it’s easy for me to know the real deal when I see it—and she’s it!"

Nancy Grace, Graceful Fundraising, LLC

"Over the past 7 years Kim has been instrumental in growing our grant portfolio from $100,000 to over $1 million annually. She is a joy to work with and provides transparency and guidance every step of the way. Kim takes the time to understand our financial needs and truly embraces the Maggie’s Place culture. Our team is thrilled to work with Kim and would recommend her to any organization!"

Laura Magruder, M.Ed. - Chief Executive Officer at Maggie’s Place

"Kim and her team provide exceptional grants management services. Successful grants programs include more than just “writing” grants. It involves the understanding and management of all aspects of the grant funding process. I never hesitate to refer Kim Joyce & Associates to organizations seeking help with their grants program."

Julie Iacobelli. - Co-Founder of c3 Strategists

"When I first met Kim, I knew my non-profit was in not just good, but great hands. Kim had been working with the organization for a number of years when I joined the staff and had such an incredible understanding for what we do. She writes about our services with such passion and empathy, helping potential donors to see the impact on our kids and families. As a non-profit with a small development staff, Kim’s expertise and talents are invaluable. It would be hard for us to afford to have an employee on staff who has Kim’s experience. Contracting with Kim is such a win for us!"

Tracy Leonard-Warner - Executive Director at Ryan House

"Kim is a professional of the highest standard. Her compassion for those served by the nonprofits she works with shines through every proposal, as does her respect for the applicant organization and the prospective funders. Kim was a valued and critical member of the Ryan House team and together we doubled grant revenue in two years to more than $800,000. Beyond the financial impact of her service, Kim helped me think strategically and in ways that best positioned Ryan House with the funding community for long-term growth. She brings critical relationships, expertise, enthusiasm, and great organization to her work."

Alyssa Crockett - Director of Legacy Giving at Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix

"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."

"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.”
