Frank Rogan, Chief Development Officer, Goodwill Industries

"David writes smart grant proposals that are winners!  He will provide you with insights that you may not have considered.  He will help you make the right appeal to the right grantor.  He will not waste your time."  

"David's greatest attribute is that he is a very talented strategist who is willing to listen and serve as your partner and trusted advisor throughout the entire grant writing process.  I highly recommend David to your organization."

Dr. Molly O'Dell, MD, MFA, retired Public Health Director, Virginia Department of Health

"While at Planned Parenthood, David Nova authored the only successful federal Title X grant proposal from Virginia other than the Virginia Department of Health.  After David established Blue Blaze Consulting, the Department of Health wisely sought his services for the subsequent grant cycle.  The $14 million statewide Title X grant proposal he developed for us was the most comprehensive and innovative we’ve ever submitted."

Ali Hamed-Moore, former Executive Director, ARCH (Bethany Hall / Trust House)

"As a former Virginia lobbyist and CEO, David understands how to use earned media to further public policy and promote organizational leadership.  Though I’d never submitted a newspaper editorial, David worked within my comfort level so my voice and vision was effectively presented to the community.  In grant writing, business plan development and the submission of my editorial, David always placed our organization’s mission above all other considerations.  I recommend Blue Blaze Consulting without reservation."
