”Working with The Woolf Group has been one of the best strategic decisions for Safe House Project. From championing key anti-trafficking legislation, supporting the programmatic work of the organization and winning grants, Bill Woolf and his team of experts have added so much value and expanded the impact of Safe House Project's work across the nation.Kristi WellsChief Executive Officer | Safe House Project
”We were presented with an opportunity to apply for multiple federal grants, and had a very short window of time to pull them together. And we knew we needed help. TWG jumped right in, getting to know our team and our work with remarkable precision. They managed all aspects of project design and grant writing so that we could produce high-quality, competitive applications. Not only did TWG complete both grant applications, but they identified other funding opportunities including federal earmarks, helped us navigate that processes and creating pathways for SHRM Foundation to continue leading positive social change impacting all things work.Wendi SafstromPresident | HRM Foundation
”TWG works alongside us to develop our strategy, expand our network, and become grant ready for large foundations. They take a personal and professional approach to make sure our goals are met. As a new anti-human trafficking organization, we feel as though TWG has adopted us into their family!Nick DeFeliceFounder & CEO | Atlantic Counter Trafficking (ACT)
”TWG definitely keeps their clients' interests in mind. When an opportunity arose for my organization, TWG reached out to alert me to the opportunity, plan a strategic approach, and guide our organization throughout the process. If it hadn't been for TWG, I would have never even been aware of the possibility!Cara TabachnickDirector | Founder, Journalism Centre on Global Trafficking
”My organization engaged The Woolf Group to help with a federal grant proposal because of their knowledge and expertise in navigating the federal grant making process. While I had written a number of DOJ grants in the distant past, their guidance made the entire process much simpler. Their first draft of the grant narrative was exceptional and required a minimal amount of input from me and my team. The Woolf Group is a wonderful team player, a strong writer and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them.Donna Rice HughesPresident and CEO | Enough is Enough

Maggie Ruffini is a scholar, strategist, and most notably, a leader. Maggie has her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Public Administration with a minor in International Affairs from the University of Northern Iowa. During her time as an undergraduate student, Maggie’s passion for servant leadership began, and she completed internships for both United States Senator Charles E. Grassley (R-IA) and Iowa State Senator Jeff Danielson. In addition to her studies, Maggie served as the University’s Director of Government Relations, advocating for the University on behalf of student interests at local, state, and federal levels. In 2018, Maggie was recognized and awarded by Black Hawk County YWCA’s Cedar Valley “Woman of Tomorrow,” for her exceptional leadership, scholastic ability, volunteer service and special achievements.
Actively involved on Capitol Hill for several years, Maggie worked in the United States Senate until early 2022 handling Judiciary Issues for Senator Joni K. Ernst (R-IA). Maggie has an abundance of experience developing and advancing legislation over the finish line, including the Violence Against Women Act, in which she had a hand in initiating change and justice for survivors of domestic and dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking in the US.
With Capitol Hill and strategic expertise, as well as her ever-growing knowledge of the judiciary portfolio including issues affecting women and children, online exploitation, human trafficking prevention, and criminal justice reform, Maggie effectively leads the TWG Policy & Government Relations team and guides our clients to success. As the Vice President of Policy and Government Relations, she navigates political landscapes while leveraging government entities to work in TWG’s client’s favor.
Outside of work, Maggie takes pleasure in traveling, entertaining friends, and spending quality time with her family. Although an Iowa native, Maggie now lives full-time in Falls Church, Virginia, with her husband and daughter.
Leveraging the government to enact policies or legislation can be a critical component to a successful strategy in achieving your goals and objectives.
However, many organizations don’t consider it an option because of how frustrating and complex navigating the government can be. The TWG team brings decades of experience working alongside and within both legislative and executive branches of government.
We are here to support your policy needs throughout the entire process – drafting policy, setting meetings, pitching your ideas, navigating appropriations and earmarks, or pushing it across the goal line – we have the experience and connections to get the government working for you!
