Grants are often a great source of support for nonprofit organizations but applying can be time consuming and difficult for anyone balancing many responsibilities. I have a decade of experience finding and applying to grants for a variety of organizations and I know how to build a strong proposal that will increase your chances of being funded. I would love to help you find grant opportunities and submit winning proposals.
For organizations who need ongoing help managing all aspects of the grants process, including: grant prospect research, budget development, evaluation tools, proposals and reports, grant calendar and deadlines.
For clients who manage most of their grant needs internally, but need an expert on hand to help with proposal editing, creating content for new grant projects, and advising on the grant process.
For organizations that need funding for a major project, I can help find private or public sources of funds and turn your idea into a compelling, competitive proposal.
