Fundraising Portfolio

Grant Writing

I have developed successful proposals for a wide range of funders, from city, state, and federal government agencies, to private foundations, local civic organizations, and corporate donors.

Since 2011, I have submitted more than 35 state and federal grant proposals to government agencies with complex application processes, securing multimillion dollar contracts in early childhood education, foster care, family supportive/preventive services, juvenile justice, and immigration services.

My successful proposals have also included programs in special education, workforce development, leadership development, nutrition education, arts programming, learning technologies, foster care and adoption services, youth development, support for individuals with developmental disabilities, housing development, and emergency relief.

Writing samples are available upon request.
