I have worked with Maura for the last several years, and she has been highly involved since Day 1. Maura thinks far beyond just the immediate grant-writing process. She is a true strategic partner who has helped me figure out our ‘big picture’, and how to make that happen. Maura played a crucial role in implementing innovative programs at Emmanuel, such as the PEER->CELL
program, which provides resources and tools such as mentorship and internship
placement to students from underrepresented backgrounds. When I recently took a new opportunity at DetecTogether, I knew I wanted to bring Maura along. I’ve had nothing but
success since working with Maura’s team. They’re going to move mountains for us!
Vice President of Development & Corporate Relations
Maura and I started working together over three years ago for two institutions and our partnership has been successful beyond my wildest expectations. Maura played a vital role in helping my team close a $50 million campaign and her continued input is invaluable. Her compassion, creativity, quick thinking, and exceptional customer service empower her clients to reach their fullest potential. Working with Maura has been a joy and I give her the absolute highest possible recommendation.
Vice President of Individual Giving
Camp Harbor View
Maura has become a critical collaborator and partner to our team. Since she started working with us, our operating budget and revenue have nearly doubled. Maura doesn’t just jump in and out - she invests the time to learn all the nuances of our vision and then provides strategic
guidance on everything from prospecting to implementing to reporting to renewals. She has also helped us to build an entire policies and procedures infrastructure so that we can remain successful in the future even as we expand. The scope of her experience is unmatched...plus
she’s just fun to work with! I can’t thank her enough for the insight and capacity she has brought to our team.
Matt Barrington, LCPC
Institute on Public Safety & Social Justice at Adler University
Maura’s wise guidance, superb writing, work ethic and experience have made all the difference in our success. Her ability to understand the complex layers of foundation relations and to proactively respond and support our department in the most effective ways has allowed us to achieve far more - and to secure significantly greater revenue - while reducing our fundraising costs. Maura has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars each year of her tenure with us; she is intrinsic to our success and growth, and great fun to work with and learn from!
Susan B. Fugliese
Director, Foundation Relations
Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital
In the last several years, Maura helped our department significantly increase its number of grant submissions. She has taken the time to really get to know our organization, mission, and team. Because of that, she’s been able to identify numerous well-aligned funding opportunities for us. I’ve worked with Maura for nearly a decade, and I’ll stay loyal to her because her expertise and “stick-to-it-iveness” truly make all the difference. I would recommend her to anyone!
Vice President of Institutional Advancement

"Maura’s help in organizing, writing and submitting a complex federal grant was absolutely invaluable. With her help we put together a first rate application and beat out the competition to receive the award. We could not have pulled it off without Maura’s help. We will definitely be utilizing her services for future grant applications."
Dina Burstein, MD, MPH, FAAP
Project Director, Center for Community-Engaged Medicine
"I took Maura's grant writing class via UMass Boston this past winter and have gained valuable skills and insight into the world of grant writing. From understanding the importance of narration to the technicalities of budgeting, I learned additional transferable skills and resources as well. Maura was a great instructor and was very engaging - no one was left out. I'm really glad I took her class. Thanks Maura!"
"The activities were very good. They helped to create confidence and also the
interactions with others presented alternative ideas and a good resounding board..."
"My expectation was to have an overview of how to go about writing grants proposals, what to pay attention to and how to go about with the budget. I learned much more beyond my expectations."

interact with her and to learn more from her expertise."
