Hear what our Clients are saying about us…


BRI has been instrumental in securing funding to allow us to expand current offerings and develop new services to the students and districts we serve. BRI has a proven record of success and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.

Julie D.
BOCES Assistant Superintendent

You’ve made this task less painful and your efforts are sincerely appreciated.

Greg B.
District Superintendent

Sara and the BRI staff are a pleasure to work with. They are a team of responsive and thoughtful professionals. They are able to assist in creating highly effective grant proposals. Without their help and expertise, we would not have received our work readiness grant award.

David B.
BOCES Director of Exceptional Education and Alternative Education

BRI provided us keen insight and guidance to acquire new funding sources that will transform our educational program and services for all students.

Molly C.
District Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction 

We commend the Groton and Batavia programs in reaching out to BRI for their evaluation needs – this, indeed, was one of the strengths in their proposals and why they were winners in the competition.

John B.
NYSED Grant Administrator

I very much appreciated the thoroughness and thought reflected in your evaluation plan…While evaluation plans don’t carry the proposal, they can elevate a strong proposal to “highly recommended” status. Your contribution is much better than most proposals I have reviewed.

Alan R.
Principal Investigator, University Director of Graduate Studies

I was very satisfied with BRI’s services. They were always available and capable of handling the task with a high degree of efficiency.

District Executive Director of Science, MSP awardee

Whether you need a full-service grant writer or just assistance with specific tasks, we can help you through the grant writing process. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) grants are our specialty. Our team of grant writers has written over 10 million dollars worth of grants for school districts, BOCES, colleges, universities, and non-profit clients over the past 10 years. We have written successful grants for the National Science Foundation, the US Environmental Protection Agency, the US Department of Education, the US Department of Agriculture, New York State Department of Education, and numerous private foundations. If your organization is short on funds, or unsure of where to start in applying for grants, we can help you search for funders who meet your program needs. Ask us about our low-cost introductory grant research package.

With the increasing number of grants in New York State requiring Minority and/or Women-owned Business Enterprise vendors, we can help you and your vendors navigate the grant writing paperwork needed to meet this requirement. We are happy to provide references from satisfied clients upon request.
