Results-driven grant writer with 7 years experience in the non-profit world. Highly adept at telling client's stories, express missions/goals/accomplishments, implement strategic planning and research, grant tracking and reporting. Highly organized and efficient grant manager.
I specialize in youth development grants, with an emphasis on Boys & Girls Clubs. I have worked with various Clubs over my 7 years as a grant writer. I have written grants for program support (Project Learn, Triple Play, Jr. Chef, STEM implementation), expansion and renovation (building of teen center, pool renovation), transportation, general operating support and much more.
In 2008, I began a small community non profit organization in order to serve local causes, support local food, and locally owned businesses. I have used this forum to assist in various projects from fire relief, assisting other non profits with grant writing and fund raising, to helping plan community gardens and more. I have used social media to connect the community, and have won the city's Best Of Twitter account for three years due to my commitment to making connections and all thing local. I have hosted 3 annual community dinners in which we have raised money for local non profits.
