Opportunity Stanislaus

February 2019

“Funding Solutions was instrumental in helping us form Opportunity Stanislaus. Recently, Fred Mickelson and Tom Mucks visited with us here in Modesto, CA to check on our progress with our investors and the Opportunity Stanislaus initiative. Together we visited current and prospective investors and Fred Mickelson conducted an offsite session with our Board of Directors…all that in just three days! Funding Solutions not only delivered in the initial campaign, but is there to make sure we are successful. They have exceeded our expectations!”
