By day, I am a fundraising consultant who offers my non-profit clients a full range of services focused on the grantseeking process, program evaluation and marketing.  Grantwriting is the main service that I provide – the crafting of proposals that maximize an organization’s changes of being funded. I also work with organizations to help develop and support in-house grantwriting talent, both through short-term editing projects and longer-term mentorship.

I came to development from a 15-year legal career, most recently as EVP and General Counsel to an internet marketing firm with more than $200 million in annual revenues at its peak. For me, grantwriting was the perfect bridge between legal writing and novel writing, since I believe that grant applications have a story arc all their own (set up in the Need section, expanded on in discussion of Programs, then brought to its climax in Outcomes and Impact).

In fifteen years, the grants I have written have raised more than $25 million for the amazing organizations I am proud to have represented.  Clients for whom I have written winning grants include: Some of the clients for whom Janet has written winning grants:
