About Laura Harris, Grant Writing Consultant
As a previous nonprofit director, Laura experienced first-hand the overwhelming difficulties of the grant writing process, so she developed a proven strategy to develop a steady flow of high-value grant funding. For the past ten years, she has helped her clients build their success rates to 65% and above (vs. the industry average of 10-30%) – resulting in many millions of dollars in grant awards for our Monterey County community. Laura’s approach is teaching and guiding others through the process, so you can further increase your capacity to raise additional funds.
