Quotes from Previous Clients
  • "GVC provided [our] organization with critical information for use in strategic and tactical planning, and in public and private grant applications."
    • Director, Nonprofit Client
  • "Tangible suggestions for improvement and actionable items (like revising our mission statement); clear and concise data we were able to present to our Board to back up proposals for changes and revisions; and detailed survey information that our limited staff time would have prevented us from obtaining."
