Mission Incorporated - Testimonials
Mission Incorporated -


                                    Many companies say that their relationship with their clients is of
the utmost importance, but there is nothing we won't do for our clients.
We care so deeply about our work, and we take tremendous pride in
what we do. Here is what some of our clients and partners had to say:

"Mission Incorporated helped me apply for new funding and to create a realistic
budget. I got nine grants totaling $42,000 this year with that budget. Mission
helped me to keep the money consistent and without that our mortgage does
not get paid, our women go back to abusive relationships, and there are more motherless children."

"Congratulations on receiving the Minority Business Leader Award. Given
all that you have accomplished I can't think of anyone who deserves this
recognition more than you. This award is another example of your commitment
 to excellence."

"Before our client-consultant relationship, I sat on the Board of Directors
of BEBASHI Inc.Transition to Hope, where Lawanda was the Director of
Development and Public Relations.  I am now the Founder and Executive
 Director of Haven Youth Center, Inc., a service agency for kids infected with
and affected by HIV/AIDS located in Southwest Philadelphia. With the help
of Mission Incorporated, we just secured $50,000.00 from AACO for Targeted HIV Testing.  Mission Inc.’s President & CEO Lawanda Horton Sauter and her team
handled all aspects of the RFP including research, communications with my
 Board of Directors and AACO analysts, composition, revision, assembly, and
delivery. I recommend Mrs. Sauter with enthusiasm as a seasoned and efficient
expert in nonprofit fund development."

I worked with Mission Incorporated and Lawanda on a State Grant Application.
Lawanda is a detailed-oriented professional who possesses a deep understanding
 and knowledge of business models and systems. Her superior research
capabilities enables her to go above and beyond in servicing clients;
even when all the details are not readily available. In short, she will find the answer! I highly recommend Lawanda to anyone seeking to obtain reliable services without the headaches of  feeling like you have to micro-manage someone"

"Lawanda and I worked together at BEBASHI, where Lawanda was Director
 of Development.At BEBASHI, Lawanda showed a truly creative approach to her
 work, and her experience in the field was apparent. She demonstrated mastery
over several areas, from event planning to fundraising  campaigns. Lawanda was
a joy to work with, and her obvious passion for development work was contagious,
 I found myself very interested in learning more about it after working with her on
various projects. She handles multiple projects and a high workload well-
she always had a lot on her plate- but balanced her time for each project.
I hope I have the opportunity to work with her again."
