Are you a community health or wellness provider? An enterprise trying to get into this market?
What you need is someone with a proven grant/writing record who knows how to design, develop and implement innovative ideas — projects that fit into existing models or that lay the foundation for something new and pragmatic.
This is what I do as a freelance writer. I do it well, on site (in the San Francisco Bay Area) or by remote. And the timing couldn’t be better.
Billions of $$ are about to start coming online to facilitate implementation of Obamacare. And the money is going to go to the truly smart and innovative competitors.
One of the unique features of my career is that I’ve been able to write on a lot of issues. Here is a list of the top focus areas I’ve secured grants in:
- Family/Community Services
- Housing / Homelessness
- Advocacy / Empowerment
- Health/Wellness (School Health Clinics)
- Economic/Gender/Social Justice
- Youth Engagement / Policy Involvement
- Early Childhood Education
If you are in need of a quick, creative and effective grant writer (or writer of other business or promotional products), let’s chat. You can connect with me directly through this site’s CONTACT page.
Otherwise, here is a sample of the kind of COVER LETTER you might receive if I find you first:
Dear Potential Client/Project Partner:
It’s my pleasure to share my credentials for this Grant Writer opportunity. I have been an active and successful writer in the nonprofit (and small business) sectors for many years.
I actually got started being dispatched by a consulting company to different clients, often barely knowing what the grant was about before I had to prepare a complex federal application – which helped me to refine my “learning quickly” abilities. Over the years I’ve served in executive management positions that also required major grant development achievements. Then I settled in as a freelance grant writer, which my resume mostly reflects.
I started working for social and community service agencies, emphasizing homelessness, supportive housing, runaway/throwaway youth projects, etc. We developed innovative vocational training components that helped bring to life the double bottom line business model that nonprofits and for-profit businesses value. This approach later helped me get engaged with gender, social and economic justice initiatives.
Today, I write on a broad range of subjects. You can see, for example, that within the last two months I’ve written for the Connecticut schools, for an Alzheimer’s music therapy software conversion, and I put together a major energy operation and efficiency transformation of California’s investor utility services. Over the years I’ve raised well over $10 million in large and small federal, state, private and event returns.
Anyway, I have attached my resume, and a selection of writings. References of a “public” sort are incorporated. Others can be arranged if you would like.
I look forward to working with you. I believe I can achieve all that you desire as set about securing new or expanded funding relationships.
