Let Leaders Building Leaders Create A Grant Assistance Package Tailored To Your Needs.
What is missing at your school?
Will money make your vision a reality?
We can help.
LBL's team member, Katy Ridnouer, partners with schools on three levels:
1. Teach the secrets of grant writing.
2. Support your in-house grant writer.
3. Write and submit grants on your behalf.
What level of support do you need?
Katy has written 3 fully-funded Charter School Program grant applications, an SRO grant, a capital campaign grant, and many other grants, totaling $2.6M in awards.
She loves to teach too, so she coaches schools through the grant writing and editing process. So far, participating schools have been awarded $1M.
LBL recently worked with us to secure a 5-year, $1.25M federal grant to open up our high school. Katy's planning, organization, timeliness, and guidance made the process seamless, ensuring that our grant was completed on time and a level of high quality. She was motivating and easy to work with, and helped keep us focused throughout the process. She helped make an overwhelming challenge into a manageable project for our team.
