Grant Services

I offer services as a freelance grant writer and consultant for projects ranging from rainforest conservation to art camp for kids.

In my previous role as the full time Grant Writer/ Prospect Researcher for Dillard University, a 150 year old Historically Black University in New Orleans, Louisiana, I secured nearly a million dollars in grant funding.

Contact me about your project and let me hook you up with the resources you need to carry out your vision!
