Are you hunting for funds? Or better yet – are you hunting for relationships? Creating connections with like-minded funders is the better strategy than simply writing a grant and submitting it cold. I can provide full-scale grant services based on your needs and will always ask to make introductions to new funders. Asking for money is inviting a funder to invest in your organization. They are not ATMs but share alignment with your mission and want to contribute to your agency’s impact.
As a Journalism school graduate, I have over three decades with published articles in all forms of media. My skills in interviewing pick up a creative angle to offer a reader. Since my start, I have covered hard news, bureaucratic meetings, courthouse hearings and my favorite – human interest profiles. I also contribute with technical writing and can collaborate with communication teams.
Securing grants and breaking a news story are both competitive endeavors. Yet, writing is such a solitary endeavor and the need for collaboration is so vital to reaching the target goal. Creating strong professional partnerships is healthy and sharing relevant strategies and Best Practices contribute to the betterment of the community. I share worksheets, checklists, and ethical musings to help you get your project off the ground.
