About Us

 Laurus Grant Writing and Evaluation Services was founded in 2011 by Anne Thompson and Christine Corriston, two experienced non-profit professionals. They wanted to find a way to bring together their collective 20+ years of experience in youth development and related fields to support communities that need help the most. The result was Laurus, derived from the Latin word for success, which strives to assist clients in achieving their individual goals.


Laurus provides grant writing, evaluation, and capacity-building services to public school districts, universities, 501(c)(3) agencies, and private businesses in the New York City tri-state area. We are committed to providing high quality expertise and developing productive, lasting partnerships with our clients. Laurus is proud to be a certified woman-owned business enterprise in New Jersey, New York State, and New York City.

 

Our mission is to help our clients continuously improve the quality of their youth development, social service, and education programs, bringing about positive change to vulnerable populations.

The team at Laurus Grants have been a pleasure to work over the last 5 years.  It has been incredibly helpful to have an evaluator who is warm and supportive. Throughout my career I have often encountered evaluators that were cold and punitive. Anne and the team at Laurus have gone above and beyond to ensure that the programs that we offer to our kids and families are the best they can be.  I have often had questions and needed guidance around programming and compliance, the team has always been friendly and more than willing to help.
