I have been the Foundation Relations Manager at UCP of Orange County since July 2018. I'm responsible for managing and building a portfolio of grantors, cultivating potential grantors, and stewarding all grant awards.
I come from a 10+ year administrative background, mainly in the nonprofit world. I have experience in IT project management, human resources, and event planning and management. Though grant writing has been part of my world for the last 5-7 years, it's only been my main focus the last 2 years or so. This position is my first full-time grant position and I am looking to glean wisdom from those who have been doing it for much longer than me!
