How It Works

How It Works

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

I help you compile a concise funding application that is on point and includes all information funders request. I don’t come in and do the application for you. This is your application and you are accountable for the funds you receive.
