Helping nonprofits achieve their mission.


At Spark the Fire Grantwriting, I believe that the way to make change is to be the change. In philanthropy, it takes hope and fire to demonstrate that your nonprofit is making a difference in the world. It takes courage and inspiration to demonstrate that your cause or project has the potential to make positive change. Join me in learning more about grantwriting as a tool and guide to garnering fundraising support.
