I have written grants for a wide array of causes and managed annual grant portfolios of $5M+. Working with large, international foundations and local family foundations, I develop proposals that build relationships, not just bring money in the door.
Fundraising requires imagination and a tight grasp on reality, flexibility and strict adherence to the organization's brand. I enjoy the fundraising puzzle of matching what the donor wants to see with how the organization wants to present itself. In order to maximize a donor, I have learned to plan effectively and draw on various resources and outreach methods.
