Grant writer and consultant:
Part of your sustainability solution
I coach my clients through the process of contacting and meeting with funders--relationships are critical to securing new and ongoing funding. I regularly advise and coach clients about their Board, planning, financials, budgeting, staffing, new projects, working with staff and more.
I build project budgets for nearly every proposal I write using current financial statements, past budgets, and verbal information from clients. I develop organizational budgets and help clients with financial planning for future initiatives.
While I am by no means and expert website designer, I can quickly put together or spruce up you website so that you are proud to say, "Visit our website." It makes good sense to have your grant writer develop content—I know how to "sell" your organization to the toughest audience—funders. I developed my own website and I wrote and designed a website for the Center for Recovery and Wellness Resources from start to finish in just a few days! Developing a strong website does NOT have to be arduous or painful. It is especially important to have a strong website from a fundraising perspective--nearly every funder will visit your site when considering an award. I can also recommend some easy software that will make it simple for your staff to make updates.
I have experience providing classroom and webinar training related to writing grant proposals and developing relationships with funders. I can deliver content at a basic, intermediate or advanced level. I can also train you to write your own grants.
