Grants and Development Writer
August 2016 — Present
Responsible for executing ELI's individual donor and foundation development plans, and managing the database of giving, contact, and communications records.
I create and distribute donor communications on the development team. This has included developing our yearly accomplishments brochure. I also have experience in donor events, working with the Development Director in facilitating major donor luncheons and ELI's 700-person yearly Award Dinner, as well as working tabling events on behalf of ELI.
In executing ELI's foundation funding goals, I conduct extensive foundation prospect research for our research staff and assist in drafting and submitting letters of inquiry and grant proposals. This includes facilitating meetings between the development and research staff to strategically target our foundation outreach efforts.
In addition, I manage ELI's state charitable registration process in over 40 states in the U.S. and serve as ELI's charity federation representative, applying for all workplace giving campaigns.
