I had almost zero expectation that as a 'yet-to-be-organized for-profit startup' approaching the state with zero product and a totally new unproven business concept we would be eligible for state grant funds. Tracy believed in my vision and gave me the confidence to apply. She diligently studied the field and really fleshed out the value proposition, approached the right people with an active go-getter attitude, and gave me a structured to-do list. Together, we did what I thought was impossible!
Founder, Perrystead Dairy
Tracy joined our team during a crucial transition in leadership. She has provided excellent service in all aspects of grant writing. Her attention to detail and follow through has shown in her initial evaluation of compliance documentation, efficient funding research, skill in building a storyline for grants, and her ability to connect with key grant personnel as needed. Most importantly, her efforts have been swift, ongoing, and have met with success in grants awarded to our organization. We are excited to have Tracy as an integral part of the HAVEN Women team.
Board President, HAVEN Women
TLK Consulting, LLC offers the service every nonprofit organization dreams of. Having successfully founded and managed multiple social impact ventures of her own, Tracy brings deep, valuable knowledge of both the macro and micro elements of growth to her consulting. She adopts the mission of every client's organization as her own and wholly dedicates herself to the client's cause. As just one of many examples from her work with me, Tracy helped take my startup nonprofit organization from the bottom 75% of charitable nonprofits by budget size nationally to the top 17%. TLK Consulting, LLC is a transformative partner, which I highly recommend!
