“We engaged Summer as a member of The Good Cause Co. Advisory Board to review and improve our charity ratings. Summer drew our attention to the difficulties high quality grassroots organisations face in securing funding. She highlighted how many grassroots NGOs are delivering much needed high-impact work, but are unable to communicate the benefit of their work to funders. Summer provided The Good Cause Co. with practical suggestions on how our rating approach can be used to build the capacity of these organisations to prepare high quality project proposals. She also provided solutions on how to measure the impact of a charity in the absence of clear, measurable indicators. Her advice has been critical in ensuring The Good Cause Co. is both inclusive and supportive of grassroots organisations.”
- Jessica Bowman, The Good Cause Co.
“Summer has a talent for capturing stories of social impact. We have worked with Summer to understand our social impact, which she has documented through an extensive follow up evaluation with our participants. We learned a great deal about the extent of our social impact by working with Summer. This material has been of enormous benefit to CAMP, as the data from the evaluation enables us to make a compelling case to partners and grantmakers. Summer is a skilled writer, and she has effectively used the evaluation material to write a number of successful grant applications for us. Her work has also enabled us to be shortlisted as finalists for some significant awards, including the 2016 Good Design Awards for Social Innovation. I would not hesitate to recommend her.”
- Andrea Myles, China Australia Millennial Project
“Working with Summer was a wonderful experience. She has a beautiful way of writing. She did an amazing job getting across the message of my company and what we stand for. I look forward to working with Summer again.”
