My consulting expertise includes:

  • Performing research to identify potential sources of grant funding.
  • Crafting grants that capture the unique essence of the organization.
  • Developing a strategy to leverage giving from donor advised funds.
  • Preparing documentation for grants including budget preparation, storytelling, creating measurable and meaningful goals and results, and writing grant reports that further your partnership with foundation boards and staff.
  • Consulting with organizations on developing grant programs including leveraging the use of your donor database for grant cultivation, creating systems for tracking grant and report deadlines, and best practices for maintaining strong relationships with the gatekeepers at foundations.

About Jennifer

I am a published author with decades of experience in nonprofit work including working with the development team at two nonprofits, participating as a volunteer, serving as a board member, and managing a private charitable foundation.

My success in grant writing stems from my holistic approach to the craft. I focus on understanding the audience for the grant proposal and creating a proposal that incorporates a balance of storytelling with facts, figures, and measurable outcomes. My goal is a compelling, donor-centric picture of the program at the center of the proposal. I am also adept at creating donor-forward views of program budgets that demonstrate a clear picture of the expenses associated with the program highlighted in the grant proposal.
