How It Works

How It Works

Funding applications are a team effort. You know your group and I know what funders need in an application, using Google docs, email and phone, together we create an application that packs a punch!

My job is to help you compile a concise funding application that is on point and includes all information necessary and nothing further. To ensure you apply to the funders you are eligible to apply to, providing complete information and applying in a timely manner to meet your needs.
