"I have worked with Ryan Johnston since 2007 through Firefly Fundraising, and with Laine Slatton since 2012. I have full confidence handing over complex projects, including major government proposals, to the Firefly team. They produce outstanding work."
"Firefly Fundraising built our grants revenue from the ground up, generating a more than 1,000% increase in ten years. In 2007, when we began collaborating with Firefly, we had no significant grants history. Today, grants from a variety of our region’s leading funders make up approximately 30% of our much-expanded operating budget."
"From winning multi-million dollar capital grants from complex government sources, to submitting literally hundreds of successful proposals to a wide variety of regional funders large and small, Firefly has been instrumental in the growth of the YMCA, which is now enjoying our most successful fundraising period in the LA Y's 135-year history."
"Our School has worked with Firefly Fundraising since 2012, and our foundation support has increased three-fold. Outsourcing our foundation efforts has proved to be a real boon, and cost effective as well."
"Always focused on returning a high ROI, Firefly Fundraising helped PCV strategically expand our grants revenue, both by finding and telling our story to new funders and by helping us leverage up the dollars we received from long-term supporters."
"Timely, detail focused, mission centered, funder specific, and client conscious. These are the consistent qualities that Firefly Fundraising brings to every project on my professional and volunteer agenda."
"As a board member, I've seen Steven Klein and his team strengthen the fundraising results at very large, complex nonprofits. Whether sitting on board committees, brainstorming in strategic planning, or crafting metrics with program staff, Firefly can be trusted to push for better strategy that leads to better results in fund raising.”
