Brittany Kirk, Principal and Lead Writer 

I am a nonprofit fundraiser and capacity builder. I specialize in grantwriting because I believe that thoughtfully prepared and strategically managed grant applications can be meaningful catalysts to collaboration, program development, community impact, and organizational sustainability.

I work with nonprofit organizations on a wide range of grantseeking projects that include: building grantwriting systems from the ground up, managing grants over an interim period, supporting content development and proposal writing for large projects, researching funders, leading all grantwriting and reporting as an outsourced extension of your team, or simply helping you figure out where to start with growing your grant portfolio.


I take a collaborative approach to nonprofit consulting. I work with other grantwriters, fundraising consultants, researchers, and assistants to ensure that we can provide the highest quality services for you. I am pleased to work with:

I also partner with other consulting firms to share resources and ideas, to refer potential clients when my schedule is full, or to join large collaborative projects:
