Program Development

Not every nonprofit is ready for grant writing or has developed a strategic plan. I can help you develop and put systems in place to streamline processes and set you up for success in your future programs and grant writing endeavors.


Grant Readiness

Once systems are in place, we’ll write your compelling story, bring together your mission and vision statement, budget, create a needs statement and proposal narrative. We’ll bring all your necessary documents together for easy and quick access


Proposal Writing

I provide quality grant writing, consultation and research services. I use databases that list thousands of grant opportunities. I write competitive proposals to put you in the running for the funding you need.

I’m not only a grant writer. I also have a non profit of my own that I manage and fund. I know the challenges of being a small non profit and all the responsibilities and tasks that need to be completed effectively and on time.

Throughout my career, I’ve been a grant writer, business and brand manager, community liaison, and event planner. Also, many years in retail has given me an appreciation for over-and-above customer service. My passions and accomplishments lie in identifying and building strategic partnerships to fund and develop programs and projects that positively impact and bring communities together.
