Grant Writer: Compelling, Clear Grants with Quick Turnaround

Get Your Great Ideas Funded! Do you need help getting describing your work in a compelling way? Do you need help just getting ideas onto paper? Are you on a tight turnaround? Tired of finding ways to describe your programmatic work to fit a foundation’s new strategic direction? Desperately needing to fill a funding gap or stabilize your non-profit’s funding by cycling grants? I’ve written successful grant applications totaling more than $10 million and I can help you! • I was a Program Director at a major foundation for 8 years and led a team which gave out over $150 million in grants. I know what foundation staff need to see in a winning proposal. • As a social policy researcher at a nationally-known think tank, I conducted dozens of program assessments, including several major evaluations for foundation-led initiatives. I can help you prove your programs work. • I hold a Master's Degree in Education and Program Development. I'll help you: • Conceptualize and describe your program in language that succeeds with funders. • Create smart, effective program design & evaluation plans. • Conduct rapid research to increase your chances of success: literature reviews, surveys and focus groups if needed. • And here's the secret but often missing ingredient: you need a communications plan. Funders want to know that the work they support is going to get out into public awareness and create real change. Expertise & Services I specialize in helping organizations and individuals secure funding for their projects through successful grant proposals. I am committed to providing high-quality, well-researched, and compelling grant applications that effectively communicate the value and impact of the proposed initiatives. 1. Grant Writing: I have experience in crafting grant proposals for various sectors, including nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and government agencies. I work closely with clients to understand their project goals and develop persuasive grant proposals that align with the requirements and guidelines of funding organizations. 2. Proposal Development: In addition to writing grant proposals, I assist in the development of project proposals and concept notes. By collaborating with clients and understanding their project vision, I help transform ideas into concise and compelling narratives, highlighting the significance and feasibility of the proposed initiatives. 3. Grant Editing and Proofreading: I offer editing and proofreading services to ensure that grant proposals are clear, well-polished, and effectively convey the intended message. 4. Grant Management and Reporting: I can provide guidance and support in managing awarded grants, including preparing timely and accurate progress reports for funders.
