Client Feedback

“As Development Manager, Ms. Mendoza was responsible for leading the organization’s fund development department, including foundation grant-writing efforts, and helped to ensure that our organization raised its annual budget. In fact, during her time at CFJ, a very challenging time for nonprofit fundraising, she helped the organization raise a surplus of funds. Ms. Mendoza has excellent writing skills and is very skilled in developing, composing, editing, and gathering critical information for grant proposals and reports. During her year at Californians for Justice, she developed, wrote, and submitted approximately twenty successful foundation proposals and reports, which equaled more than $750,000 in grants to the organization.”

Jeremy Lahoud, Executive Director, Californians for Justice
