Service Description

I provide clients with a proposal that targets their audience: the potential funders. As a client youíll supply information about the project, program or capital investment for which you are seeking funds and tell me why the funds are required. With passion and diligence, Iíll transform this information into a compelling call to action from the funding agency

The municipal and non-profit concerns I worked for were awarded 130+ grants for environmental, artistic and cultural projects from private foundations, federal, state and municipal entities.

Marketing experience includes research, strategy and planning, collateral design and preparation, newsletter and brochure writing, ghost writing, and RFPs.

While serving four organizations, Iíve written and distributed press releases to local media outlets, newspapers, television and radio stations, and online news sites.

I welcome and encourage frequent communication between the client and myself during the writing process to ensure that I produce quality results.
