WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?
Let me know what you need help with and I’ll prepare a quote!
- Writing: My greatest strength is storytelling, a critical component to successful applications. Picking the right stories for each grant and telling them well is key.
- Grant Research: Don’t waste time applying for the wrong grants. I can help you identify the largest grants you’ll have a good chance of winning.
- Grant Toolkits: Do you start from scratch on every application? I can create a library of text and images you can tweak and re-use.
- Proofreading & Editing: Have you already written a grant application? I can make it clear, crisp, and on-point!
- Developing Your Look: I’ll help you select fonts and a color palette that work with your logo or design a new logo if you need one.
- Mission & Vision: Your mission statement defines who you are. Your vision statement defines what you want to be. These should guide every decision you make.
- Website Design: I’ll design your site to reflect your brand and have the fundraising tools you need.
- Social Media Plan: I’ll help you decide platform(s) to use, how often to post, and how to keep the content on-brand and consistent.
- Annual Reports: When a donor or grantor looks at your annual report, everything from the financial reports to the storytelling must be perfectly on-point.
- Web Content: Content on your website needs to be fresh, compelling, and on-brand.
- Press Releases: Each press release you send out is a free ad. I’ll build the target media list, write the releases, and send them out for you.
- Press Kits: I’ll make sure when reporters find your site, they’ll have everything they’ll need to create accurate, compelling news stories.
