What is your vision for your organization?
Listening to you, really hearing what you and your team want for the organization is one of the skills I bring to the work. Together, we dig into your vision to make this a reality. My style is enthusiastic, hopeful, and intuitive.
I specialize in arts and film development, family support and economic development, youth development, education, health, and social service/ mental health services--with a focus on culturally competent practices. I have a special interest in the arts and community arts programs, including documentary film, multi-media, and video production.

FUND DEVELOPMENT PLANNING
In our first 30-60 minute session I will review your current fund development plan and share an assessment of the strengths and challenges, opportunities, and potential threats. From this assessment I can develop a 6-12 month plan for your project and/or organization. This may include:
Developing a plan for diversification of funding;
Identifying potential individual donors and strategies;
Identifying earned income/fee for service opportunities;
Recommending foundation and government grants;
Document and budget review; and
Creating master grant application documents.
PRIVATE FOUNDATION & GOVERNMENT GRANTS
Based on my years of experience I have relationships with funders across the SF Bay Area, Los Angeles, the Central Valley, across California, and in states around the country. I can provide your organization with information about funders and develop a unique list with recommendations for you. From this list we may develop priorities based on your organizations needs.
I maintain an updated database of documentary and fiction film funders across the country. Based on your project, I can identify potential funders that may be a match.
