What I Do
Grant Writing and Reporting
As an experienced grant writer, no funding request is too large or small! I have written successful grants to national foundations, federal and state funding sources, and local and regional private sources of funding. Since 2012, I have helped organizations in Southeast Louisiana raise over $12 million in grant funding.
Newsletters, monthly emails, impact reports, solicitations, and the all-important thank you letter: all of these are crucial to your organization’s financial sustainability. Together, we can create donor-centric communications and campaigns that inspire people to give.
Prospect Research and Management
With ten years of experience in library science and a strong knowledge of the philanthropic landscape, I can help identify foundations, state agencies, donor-advised funds, and individuals who are promising prospects for your organization. Additionally, I can help you keep track of your prospects and their moves.
Planning and Evaluation
Whether you need a Strategic or Fundraising Plan, an Organizational Strategy, One Sheet or related organizational documents, I can help you put your vision into words. Additionally, if you are looking to evaluate your organization or program, I can help you understand how you are performing and how best to document and communicate your growth.
General Writing and Editing
Do you want to make sure that your web copy is engaging and sparks action? Is your monthly newsletter overdue? Do you need a biography, press release, blog post, or cover letter? My General Writing and Editing services have you covered!
Writing Coaching and Workshops
Do you carry the writing load at your organization? Many folks responsible for their organization’s communications are not professional writers. I can train you in writing and editing best practices in either a one-on-one or workshop setting; this is a great option if you want to learn how to beat writer’s block, create compelling pitches, or cross-train your entire team. No job or workplace functions without effective, clear, and compelling communication. Let me help you and your organization succeed as writers.
