Comments from clients:

“So much of our program growth over the past 5 years has been due to the talents and initiative of Tobin Scipione of Scipione Consulting!  As Community Servings has expanded from a home-delivered meals program for the critically ill to include new initiatives in job training, social enterprise, international technical assistance, Tobin has been a key player in our strategy and implementation of these new endeavors.  She has increased our grants revenues by more than 150%, contributing close to $1 million to this year’s budget, despite the hard economic times.  We love her thorough approach to grant-writing, as well as her warm, and generous spirit!”

“The staff at Scipione Consulting are knowledgeable, professional and continually keep the best interest of the Bicycle Coalition of Maine in mind. Our staff works with Scipione Consulting as a team and their assistance and guidance have been invaluable as we grow our fledgling grants program.”

– Allison Vogt, Executive Director
Bicycle Coalition of Maine

Working with Scipione Consulting has allowed Add Verb Productions to up our game–our funders are telling us our proposals are stronger.  We are telling our story better.  Our case is more compelling.  And that’s what we need to be competitive.  We can’t afford a Director of Development at this time.  Contracting for a certain number of hours, and working with Jasa and Tobin to prioritize how they can best help us get what we need has been a cost-effective solution–and, they’ve been completely responsive to our evolving needs.
