“Just act like children. They don’t have any problem continuing to ask for money once you’ve told them no.”Kim Klein, founder, Grassroots Fundraising Journal

I just don’t write grants; I coach you on how to strategically approach prospective funders. Understanding the unique and sometimes complex funding process of foundations and government agencies is essential to obtain support for your project. With over 15 years of grant writing experience securing government, corporate and foundation grants, I will help your organization successfully navigate the process.

With clear and concise language, I will develop convincing proposals designed to demonstrate to funders that your organization’s mission is aligned with their funding priorities. I will help you develop program budgets and evaluation plans that are consistent with the proposal’s narrative and funder requirements.

I’ve raised millions in grant dollars for a variety of programs—from youth services and stress prevention programs for police officers to support for arts organizations.

Kathy has been incredible to work with and has helped me on so many levels from more clearly defining and molding our programs to building a better board structure. In addition she is a superb person to brainstorm ideas with. I would most certainly refer and highly recommend her expertise to other nonprofit organizations!
