Grant Writing

Grant Application- Liberation UCC, New and Renewing Church Fund

I furnished full-service grant writing for a small, social-justice oriented church in their application to the National Office of the United Church of Christ’s New and Renewing Church Fund. Responsibilities included finding the funding opportunity, conducting research, and drafting a proposal. In this application, Liberation requested $35,000 but was awarded $40,000! With the exception of one section (noted in the manuscript) all writing is my own. 

Liberation UCC Impact Statement

When applying for a renewal of funds from the United Church of Christ, Liberation UCC was asked to provide a one-page impact statement relating the effect of last year’s funding. I designed the document and wrote all copy. After the grant was awarded, Liberation was asked if this document could be used as an example for future applicants.

Grant Application-Bridge Ministries, CityGrant

I crafted Bridge Ministries entire application to King County's CityGrant portal—a single application funding program that allows King County nonprofits to apply for funds from a number of municipalities.
