FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How long have you been writing grants? A. I initiated my journey into grant writing during the summer of 2018, collaborating with an independent charter school in Utah. Since then, I have continually expanded my expertise and experience in the field.

Q. What are your primary areas of expertise? A. My involvement with charter schools spans over two decades, encompassing roles as a founding parent, teacher, director, and board member. With a specialized focus on charter school leadership, I've written over 75 foundation grants and contributed to the development of charter school applications, training materials, and major/federal grants. I've also served as a Peer Reviewer for CSP Grants (US Dept of Ed, 2018, 2019, 2022 & 2023), CCSP Grants (Colorado Dept of Ed, 2020, 2021 & 2023), Education Innovation & Research (EIR) Grant, and Full Service Community Schools (FSCS) Grant in 2022. This experience has provided valuable insights into the evaluation and scoring of CSP grants.

Q. What is your understanding of school funding and nonprofit organizations? A. Having immersed myself in charter schools since 2000, my journey began as a founding parent in a Colorado charter school. I progressed from a teacher to a Charter School Director, completing a Master's degree in Educational Leadership with a focus on Charter School Leadership in 2009. This extensive experience has equipped me with an in-depth understanding of charter school finances and best practices in grants management. In the past three years, I've extended my expertise to working directly with small nonprofit organizations, aiding in program development and grant proposal writing.

Q. What experience do you have working with grants for schools and nonprofits? A. I've written more than 75 foundation grants for charter schools and nonprofits across seven states. My passion lies in supporting education nonprofits that focus on student-centric initiatives, such as STEM programming and after-school tutoring. Notably, I crafted a winning CSP grant for a new charter school in 2023.

Q. What is your process like? A. Grant writing is a collaborative effort tailored to your organization's unique goals. Together, we ensure your readiness to win grants, covering documentation preparation, clarity in statements describing your work, and appropriate grant selection. We start by sharing essential documents like your IRS 501(c)(3) letter, recent budget, and charter or strategic plan goals. Grant selection aligns with your goals, and with your approval, I begin drafting proposals. Regular communication ensures the work meets your expectations, with opportunities for your input and final review before submission.

Q. What would you expect from me or my staff? A. Your involvement includes providing necessary documents and information. Feedback on draft submissions is crucial for meeting your expectations. Throughout the process, feel free to communicate any questions or concerns.

Q. What is your availability? A. While my schedule is flexible, I do have ongoing commitments. Typically, I can produce a foundation grant within two weeks. Major grants or federal grants may require advance notice and take approximately six weeks to complete.
