GRANT WRITING

Experienced. Articulate.

Securing funding through grants can be challenging, especially when executive directors and staff have other important work that needs attention. There are many elements that go into writing successful grants, and Dr. Lash Esau will partner with staff or take on the whole grant process to take care of these elements. This will free up staff to focus on other priorities.

Using experience to handle complex process

Dr Lash Esau'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, she has successfully written grants of various sizes for different types of funders with a nearly 80% award rate.

 

Each funding organization has unique requirements, deadlines, preferences, etc., which can be confusing. Dr. Lash Esau 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.
