Overview

I have helped many non-profit agencies successfully research and secure grant funds from private foundations and government agencies, while raising public awareness for their mission.

Service Description

Reading and writing are my passion.

My experience is rooted in the business/non-profit world where I spent more than 20 years as a fund raiser and grant writer. I have helped many non-profit agencies further their mission and reach their financial goals. This was done by personalizing their message to reach their target audience.

My grant writing experience is mostly with private foundations and companies. I have secured funds for Start-up Non-Profits, Capital Campaigns, Scholarships, and Special Programs.

Several years ago, I changed careers to spend more time with my family. I became a Teacher. It is a rewarding career that offers wonderful hours to raise a family.

Now, I would like to use my skills and passion to help you further your business, find your voice and build your success.

I am certain that my skills will have a positive impact for you.
