“Gail Koelln was the original Development Director for Queens Theatre in the Park and worked here for more than six years, during which time she helped to raise over $6 million. Since she started GK Grant Writing, she has continued to work for the Theatre as a consultant. We are happy to have her continue as part of the Development team, as her work is thorough and of the highest quality, and her integrity is unquestionable.”

– Jeffrey Rosenstock, Executive Director, Queens Theatre in the Park

“Working with GK Grant writing is an absolute pleasure! I have been overwhelmed with the quick turn around time, even when preparing our most challenging and in-depth grant applications. Gail understands how critically important this process is for non-profits, and has provided us with incredible guidance and support when we began our grant writing initiatives.

“Gail is deeply committed to ProjectExplorer’s work and strongly believes in our mission and educational possibilities. With this understanding and commitment to our work, she clearly communicates in each grant proposal the unique and innovative ways in which ProjectExplorer addresses the need for global education in primary and secondary education not only in New York, but on a worldwide scale.”

“GK Grant writing has been an excellent consulting firm to work with. The timely and rapid responses to requests and the quick turn around on producing documents we can use to raise funds with is ensuring the future of our education program. A pleasure to work with! A consummate professional — with just the right amount of "nudging" to keep us on track and on time!”

“I have known Gail for two years now and began working with GK Grant Writing in fall 2006. She has always provided me with excellent guidance and, whenever needed, she is happy to go the extra mile for me and my dance company. And, boy can she get things done! I hope to continue our working relationship for many years to come.”
