Grantwriting is important but it’s only part of the story. I work collaboratively with organizations to secure funding; clarify mission and strategic vision; communicate more effectively; develop, improve, manage and evaluate programs; and forge connections and strengthen relationships.
To help your organization secure and sustain funding, I will:
- Research potential and realistic sources of funding
- Initiate and maintain communications with funders
- Help shape collaborative partnerships
- Prepare proposals and applications for government, foundations and other funders
- Gather and synthesize information
- Prepare a cohesive, organized and persuasive narrative
- Help with program development
- Assist with budgets and other supporting documents
- Help prepare for site visits
- Prepare reports to funders
Other areas in which I can help include other kinds of writing projects; research; measuring and improving program effectiveness ; capacity-building; facilitation; and compliance (such as policies and procedures, grants and contract management).
