Marketing/Fundraising


  Marketing and Fundraising

  • Marketing:  My background in marketing includes almost every possible type of promotional and outreach writing, from 30-second radio spots for a public radio station to full-scale web content for a major health institution.  I've written brochures, outreach video scripts, educational materials, sales pitches, magazine articles, advertorials, biographical profiles, blogs and annual reports. 
  •  Fundraising: With 20+ years of experience in developing and writing grant proposals to foundations, government agencies, corporations and individuals, I've raised funds at all levels for major museums, universities and hospitals as well as smaller community and cultural institutions.   Awards based on my grant proposals have ranged from $500 for a small grassroots organization to $4,000,000 for a major collaborative.  In addition to grant proposals, I write case brochures, annual reports, cultivation materials and a wide range of educational and web publications.
