Kim Shumpert; Executive Director, CityYouth Ministries, Inc.

“Kharis Grants has allowed me to maximize my time in the office and focus on developing our organization. Shunqetta has gone above and beyond to provide an excellent service to our agency.

“We Rely on Her Expertise…”
Dr. Brenda Randle; Founder & Director, The Writing Doctor, Inc.

“As we know, anyone can string words together, however not everyone can do this at a professional level. A great grant writer is a rare breed that can simply take ideas and weave them into an interesting “story” that markets the organization and sells the program or project effectively. Kharis Grants has the expertise, experience and rare capability to effectively tell your “story.” I have utilized this business several times and each time the grant was exceptionally written. The organization’s goals were clear, concise, properly stated, researched properly and the grant was submitted in a timely manner. If you choose Kharis Grants, you will not be disappointed!”

“You Will Not Be Disappointed!”
