Testimonials

“I’ve come to learn from Janeal that grant writing is only a small portion of resource development. So here I am, a first time CEO with only grant writing experience, and Janeal showed me what to do. She coached me through my first meetings with funders. We role played, and she was there every step of the way – helping me get comfortable with the ask. Through Janeal’s leadership and expertise I learned about the importance of building strategic relationships and all the components involved in donor cultivation. I am a stronger nonprofit CEO and the organization I run is also stronger because of Janeal.” Kate Rubalcava

President CEO, Utah Nonprofits Association

“Janeal has significant theoretical and practical experience in the non-profit area and is passionate about working with organizations and people who provide critical human services.  She is strategic and practical – both professionally and personally.  She looks at issues from all sides and thinks them through; she knows why she is doing something or recommending a course of action.  She is an excellent and experienced writer and an effective presenter – one-on-one, small group and large group.  When tasks pile up, she prioritizes but also just works harder and longer.  She gets things done!” Sally Archer

“Write It Up! has partnered with Fordable Fundraising on several occasions for grant writing services, research and fund development for our nonprofit clients.  Janeal Ford has provided exceptional service and brought vital experience and support to our clients.  In addition, she has procured funding that has allowed our clients to provide key programs and services to at risk populations in southern Utah.  Working with Fordable Fundraising translates to greater mission impact for the many charitable organizations I work with, and life changing opportunities and experiences to those we serve.  Janeal’s work ethic and success rate mean success for my clients, and ultimately success for my firm as well.  She is truly a pleasure to work with!” Dawn McLain

“Janeal blew me (and the audience) away. It is easy to see and hear the passion she has for helping nonprofits get the money they need to make a difference in their mission. She does not only have a great heart to make a difference but has a tremendous sense of humor. She is so great to work with and pulls no punches. I love all of these things about Janeal.” Lynda West

Creator of Finishit Fast, Living Live TV Show

“It was such a pleasure working with Janeal. She’s extremely professional and very knowledgeable in nonprofit board development, fundraising, and the essentials of running a successful organization and much more. As a new Executive Director, I was overwhelmed with the various tasks and it was my first year to hold a board retreat. Janeal came in and inspired my board about the culture of philanthropy. She spoke to “why they are there?” and the ways in which they can support the organization. My board came away feeling more energized and more prepared to take on the roles and responsibilities of a board member. I’m truly grateful for all her support and highly recommend Janeal Ford.” Kiran Shelat

Executive Director, Classics 4 Kids

Government grant writing can be tedious, however working with Janeal is a joy! She’s a visionary that sees the possibilities and helps us craft them into realities. Janeal is a tenacious spirit that keeps our team on track – she dives into a complicated RFP and simplifies it so that we can all do our best to provide her with program details that she turns into an award-winning grants. I’ve known Janeal for several years and have had the opportunity to work closely with her on a variety of projects during that time. She’s always available for brainstorming, provides me with ideas and opportunities to improve our programs, and more importantly [improve] our overall fundraising strategy.  Janeal’s an integral part of our development team and I love her positive outlook on work and life!” Cathleen Sparrow

Chief Development Officer, Volunteers of America, Utah

“Having a grant writer who can proficiently write about your organization and find unique revenue streams is of paramount importance. Janeal organized our grant writing process, increased our income, and gave me peace of mind that all details were attended to professionally and timely. I would highly recommend Janeal to any organization that needs a creative self-starter with a deep understanding of grant writing and reporting.” Pearl Wright

Marketing and Communications Director, Choice Humanitarian

“Over the past few years we have partnered with Fordable Fundraising to assist us with writing grants and also provide consultation on fundraising projects. Janeal offers valuable insight on development strategies and we have experienced growth in our reach during the time we worked together.” Jack Rolfe
