What Others Are Saying About KHARIS

“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!

The retreat was EVERYTHING!!! I was able to see the missing links and was given a lot to think about! I loved the icebreaker with the cards.  Communication is truly the key!
