2017 – A Grants Galore client received one of eight grants awarded statewide.
2007 – Two organizations serving the same community each hired Grants Galore to develop a proposal for a competitive state grant. The funder awarded grants to both applicants, in spite of the stipulation that only one grant would be awarded to any given community.
