”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
