  • Jamie Stanley from the NonProfit Advantage recently taught a session on “Grant Writing All-Stars” for our United Way partnering agencies in Ellis County.  Her insight & content was extremely beneficial to all involved and participants were able improve on their tactical skills with writing grants.  I highly recommend Jamie for any coaching & training exercises.

  • Working with Jamie was an absolute blessing to have someone who is not only extremely knowledgeable and skilled at everything she does, but also incredibly passionate and full of heart for helping entrepreneurs move their dreams from ideas to reality. She brings new ideas, possibilities, and vision to your project to aid your own agenda without taking it over or straying from your original plan- a rare skill in consulting. Without her expertise and belief in me I may have never moved forward in certain areas. She truly makes dreams a reality, and I highly recommend her to anyone, especially those who have passion and emotion but need someone with business know-how and objectivity!

  • The Nonprofit Advantage has really helped bring our organization to the next level. Jamie has helped organize our program priorities, our outcomes, and outputs and maximize our funding opportunities. Without this help, we wouldn't be able to impact those we serve in our community as much as we do now.
