Grant Writing Coach

Foundations prefer that grant applications are written by the volunteers & staff involved in the organization. They are the people who will be contacted to answer follow-up questions. Al Will helps you find the right foundation(s) to apply to, help determine the appropriate ‘ask', and will edit the draft and coach you up to the final submission.
