EXPERT CONSULTANT/GRANT WRITER
Are you an entrepreneur? Starting a small business or nonprofit? Not sure about how to get started? Not sure of what needs to be done first? Questions about funding and/or grants....I have over 20 years of experience as a consultant and grant writer. My comprehensive services are tailored to your business needs. I offer highly individualized service, provide in-depth consulting so that you understand the how's and why's of business, grants and other kinds of funding. Specializing in nonprofit start-up and development, small business development, grant writing particularly federal and highly complex grants.
Please note: For newly-forming non-profits, and those under two years old, I require detailed discussion on organizational and programming financials. Unfortunately, many foundations, corporations, and other funding entities are requesting in-depth financials that often include: 990 forms and audited financials. For most newly forming non profits these forms are not readily available. It has been my experience that many newly forming nonprofits underestimate the time and financial resources it will take to cultivate and build credible relationships with funding entities. Also, and this is equally important, it has been my experience that some newly forming non profits do not have credible financials - or have, in fact, not created any kind of budget to propel the organization forward. I can, of course, assist in developing budgets, but this does take time and discussion.
I am a very methodical working...working carefully and consistently in providing superlative products. Not too fast, not too slow, I deliver! And my service is next to none: I believe in the power of partnership, collaboration, and open lines of communication. If this is for you...then we should talk! If you, however, want someone "to go it alone" as some clients prefer, then I am not the one for you!
My consulting/grant writing services are comprehensive, individualized, personalized and exemplary. I love what I do, and my work reflects this!
