Grant Writing

I am a very effective grant writer. I have over 90% success rate in proposal submission and I raised over $1 million in both Fiscal Years 2007 and 2008. This amount represented over one-fifth of the total organization budget. It is important to note that SeaWeb did not have a development department or staff.

Partial list of organizations that funded proposals I wrote:

  • The American Association for the Advancement of Science
  • AVINA
  • Disney Family Foundation
  • Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation
  • Keith Campbell Foundation
  • David and Lucile Packard Foundation—Marine Fisheries Program
  • David and Lucile Packard Foundation—Western Pacific Program
  • John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation
  • National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis
  • National Fish and Wildlife Foundation
  • National Marine Sanctuary Foundation
  • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
  • Tiffany & Co.
