Dave Bower, Professional Grant Writer

Hi, I’m Dave Bower, a professional freelance grant writer. Here’s a little information about my experience, and why you’ll want to choose me for your grant writing needs.

Prior to becoming a freelance grant writer, I worked for five years in the nonprofit development field for a New York City based nonprofit. There I learned the ins and outs of the grant writing process, honed my grant writing and research skills, and developed a true knack, not just for writing successful grant proposals, but also for finding the best funding sources for each individual program. Instinctively I knew I had talent, when in my first year alone, I helped secure over $1,000,000 in new funding for my agency’s programs.

Since then I’ve been working as a freelance grant writer with nonprofits of all shapes and sizes to bring their programs into fruition by seeking out appropriate funding sources and writing letters of intent and grant proposals that get them the funding they need.

My Grant Writing Process

My approach to the grant writing process is an individual one. I work one-on-one with each nonprofit to tailor a course that best suits your organization’s needs, and I’m available to work on one or all aspects of the grant funding process.

Unlike working with bigger grant writing agencies, I’ll be the only grant writer you’ll be working with, and as a result you can be assured that your organization will get the proper attention it deserves.

Here’s a sample of just some of the foundations I’ve worked with:

  • Blanche T. Enders Charitable Trust
  • Lavelle Fund for the Blind
  • Allene Reuss Memorial Trust
  • The New York Community Trust
  • TD Charitable Foundation
  • Generations United
  • Abram and Ray Kaplan Foundation
  • Reader’s Digest Partners for Sight Foundation
  • United Way of New York City
  • WT Grant Foundation
  • Moses L. Parshelsky Foundation
  • Solon Summerfield Foundation
  • Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation
  • Liz Claiborne Foundation
  • New York Cares
  • Simon and Marie Jaglom Foundation
  • Laura B. Vogler Foundation
