Our Experience

More than 20 years of years of experience with corporate America for-profits and non-profits prepared Merle Ray to become founder & CEO of The Noble Groups. Since opening in 2003, our experience has ranged from non-profit development (strategic plans, budget forecasts, workforce programs, board growth, grant-writing and evaluation, and social services programming) to for-profit development (sales & marketing tools, organizational infrastructure, business plans, new business, HR, technology, marketing & real estate.)

As a result of our work with non-profits, in their first year as clients, one organization acquired more than $450,000 in competitive grant funding for workforce development, including nearly $200,000 in new funding. Another organization received more than $30,000 for the first time toward youth development and repeated funding thereafter; a third received more than $90,000 in educational, criminal justice and workforce development of youth and over $262,000 in repeated funding. Since inception, we have written more than 18 winning grant proposals ranging $1,500 to over $200,000. We have provided more than 6,000 billable hours in business planning, strategy development, and capacity-building services to non-profits. In addition, our work with for-profit clients has resulted in stronger marketing strategies, rewriting business plans, training and development, and start-up funding strategies.                                                                                        More >>>
