Contracted, Experienced Grant Writer
Securing funding through grants can be challenging for even experienced grant writers. There are many elements that go into writing successful grants. Amy will partner with staff or take on the whole grant process to free up staff for other important work.
Organization needs and funder requirements vary, so quotes are customized following a free, initial consultation. Services include: researching available grants; identifying and monitoring grant cycles; evaluating, developing, or improving outcome measures; writing applications to funders' specifications; and clear communication throughout the process.
Amy's grant writing experience began in 2013 by helping a nonprofit in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with a grant from a community foundation. The $78,000 grant was awarded to help the organization purchase equipment to expand their program and community impact. Since then, Amy has successfully written grants of various sizes for different types of funders with an almost 80% award rate. Each funding organization has unique requirements, deadlines, preferences, etc., which can be confusing. Amy will bring her understanding of these complexities together with her ability to quickly deep dive into your organization needs and vision to improve the likelihood of being awarded grants to support your organization's mission.
