About Adrienne Ross, Freelance Grant Writing

My clients range from well-established organizations with large budgets to grassroots nonprofits new to grant writing. I’m at my best helping small to mid-size nonprofits gain the operating and capacity building funds needed to strategically strengthen their organization, expand their programs, and deepen their community impact.

My core services are:
• Writing and obtaining grants for operating support, project support, capital campaigns, or capacity building,
• Conducting prospect research,
• Creating and maintaining grant calendars and/or other tracking systems,
• Researching studies, demographics, or other data pertinent to the client’s focus,
• Assisting with the grant-oriented aspects of program development.

I have over 25+ years of experience in the nonprofit sector as program staff (in direct services, advocacy / public policy, fundraising, and communications), as a member of a Board of Directors, and as an avid community volunteer. My breadth of experience across all sides of the nonprofit table helps me jump into a project and begin quality work with little “ramp up” time.
