Her journalism background allows her to write extremely effective grants on tight deadlines with speed and precision. 


Kelley’s exceptional attention to detail has helped her proposals receive funding from organizations including but not limited to the United Way of Greater Kansas City, numerous corporations, government funders in both Missouri and Kansas, and private trusts and foundations such as the Hall Family Foundation, Health Forward Foundation, William G.

Whether it’s a emotionally-engaging story shown at your Gala that motivates your audience to give in your fund-a-need auction or a one-minute action-packed story for social media to get clicks, we know how to tell dynamic visual stories.


The video story you tell is critical to raising more money. A Network for Good study found that organizations who use videos in their fundraising appeals raise four times as much as those who do not. And, 57% of people who watch a nonprofit video go on to make a donation, according to Google.


Let us produce and direct your video story from start to finish. 


Here are some examples of our award-winning videos:
