Being new to grant writing and with the opportunity to help finance our fire company through submitting a grant application, we approached Aspire for assistance. The team was very willing to look at our objectives and what requirements we needed to submit. After dedicated research and interviews,we submitted for two grants; Somerset County Tourism & Community Foundation for the Alleghenies. Being a first time applicant, we were awarded both grants.We feel that without Aspire’s help we would not have received this funding. We appreciate their dedication and loyalty and would highly recommend!Mr. Clair R. Saylor
