"Kristin has mad skills in both program development and fundraising! I have worked with Kristin and her team at Kelley Nonprofit Consulting on a variety of fund development, programmatic and strategic initiatives.  I am always impressed by Kelley NPC’s ability to focus on (and often define) the objective with a keen eye on both efficiency and mission. Kristin is a strategic thinker and writer.  I highly value her keen ability to be concise, goal oriented and mission focused. Kristin and her team have the rare ability to shape strategic, actionable initiatives from big or broad ideas."  – Caryl Zenker, Development Director - Portland Opportunities Industrialization Center, Inc.

"I have worked with Kristin for the past two years of my tenure as a member of the Black United Fund board and as board chair for the past year. I cannot overstate the strategic and practical value her involvement has provided to the organization. Her contributions to our fundraising efforts have served to reverse a previous program deficit and reposition the organization within the focus areas of several founders and foundations. She has and remains a key contributor to our ability to carry out our mission." - Michael Alexander, Board Chair - The Black United Fund of Oregon

"I have had the pleasure of working with Kristin for over 13 years, since the inception of our nonprofit, Financial Beginnings. I rely on her immensely for so many things including; writing, strategic planning, research and evaluation. I am constantly amazed by how adeptly she captures the essence of any project or initiative, and works strategically and swiftly to see it through from planning to funding to launch and then evaluation. She is quick-thinking, a joy to work with, and has been instrumental in the growth and success Financial Beginnings has enjoyed. - Melody Bell, CEO and Founder, Financial Beginnings

"Kristin has made a tremendous impact on our organization, We have engaged her expertise in grant writing services for several projects, most notably funding to produce our Telly Award winning documentary. Kristin’s insights on data collection, narrative writing and budget analysis is the reason we successfully receive funding for many of our organization's projects.


"In addition, Kristin has developed various marketing materials for us, and our organization benefited from her extensive knowledge in this areas.  I highly recommend Kristin to any organization in need of a consultant who excels in grant writing , but also has the insight and experience that supports all aspects of program planning and implementation. She has captured the feeling and emotion of H.O.P.E. and translated it to the grant applications. Her diligence and insightfulness has enabled her to successfully request and obtain funds for our programs and services. She is a true asset to our organization, and dedicated to the mission of our organization."
