About My Business:


Grant writing must be integrated with the overall development plan. I make it a point to know (1) what data is most relevant to your case, (2) where to find the data from the most credible sources, and (3) how to compile the statistics and evidence into a compelling case that has a human side. I specialize in grant funding from government agencies. I also have a respectable success rate with foundations and corporations. I write proposals for non-profits and local government in the areas of art, education, spaces and places, health and human services. Many of my proposals have funded operating expenses, books and supplies, professional development and training, equipment, buildings and infrastructure. Successful grant seeking requires a strategy, a commitment to the process, and a plan for long-term organizational sustainability. I go into most client relationships expecting to suggest partnerships, build organizational capacity, improve internal controls, and develop effective short and long-term strategies. The professionalism and communication skills of a professional grant writer are paramount. I have a same-day response policy. I update the client using a schedule that identifies each deliverable and the timeline for completion. My contract includes how to address problems that arise (something unanticipated always happens!). I prefer to communicate by email. I work with clients using a shared virtual server environment.
