Let’s face it; writing grants isn’t always as fun as you think it’s going to be.

You might be working on ten other things when a great grant opportunity comes along. The grant proposal is due in a few weeks (or the day after tomorrow) and the funder wants a detailed narrative, concise goals and objectives, a logic model, an organization chart, an evaluation plan and a line item budget that looks out three years. They also want you to watch a webinar or maybe even attend a bidder’s conference at some hotel in Marlborough, MA. There are four organizations with whom you want to collaborate.

I will flesh out your program idea, bring in the right partners, and write a realistic, measurable grant proposal. Drawing upon my successful track record of obtaining grants from public and private sources, I’ll work out the details of how to implement your great idea cost effectively and efficiently. I will go to the bidder’s conference. I’ll get everything done on time. You can continue to work on your ten other things while raising money to implement great programs.
