Dear Ms. Cranston,
I am writing to apply for the Grants Officer position with Community Resources, Inc. I am a fundraising professional with over seven years of grant writing and solicitation experience.
In my current role as Grants Officer with the Bair Foundation, I research available funding sources, prepare proposals, attend fund raising events, provide tours of the facility to potential donors, along with other duties related to obtaining program funds. I am a skilled communicator, both in writing and orally, and I enjoy reaching out to donors, as well as the community. My organizational skills are top-notch, and I am able to handle a number of tasks in a timely fashion.
I am thorough in m grant solicitation methods and never fail to follow instructions to the letter, as I know this is of utmost importance to the success of winning requests for proposals. On average, I secure three out of five grants for which I apply. I would love to bring this record to the Grants Officer position with Community Resources so that your organization can expand its services to the people of New Parkland.
I am confident you will find me to be a well-qualified candidate. Please contact me soon to schedule an interview. I look forward to meeting with you and thank you for your time.
