What did DG Educational Services need?

Michael helped DG Educational Services

Why is this project important?

Time is in short supply. While our international program manager has written and obtained grants, it is challenging to manage the reporting process, etc. and pursue new funding for both the domestic and international programs. On the other hand, it is time for our organization and programs to grow. Interest in the programs is increasing, but limited by available resources. To achieve this growth, we need a full time Executive Director who can focus on fundraising, grant writing, and networking. To hire a full time director, we will need a grant for the first year. This grant template will first be used to obtain funding for a salaried director and then adapted for other purposes.

This project will save us $5,140, allowing us to provide camp scholarships for 10 kids from low income neighborhoods.

I am a research scientist with a focus on Animal Welfare. I currently live in Switzerland though was born, raised and educated in the US and spent 6 years in the UK. I have always enjoyed volunteering but realized that some of the skills that I have accumulated over the years as a scientist could be helpful to organizations like yours which seek to improve the state of our world. Thus, I am eager to get to work. Skills which I think may be of use are mainly grant-writing and statistical analysis of data, though I may also be able to help with project management, developing budgets and evaluating personnel. My experience is in scientific research, though I think the skills are easily transferable and have already written some templates through connections made at Catchafire.org.

Fun Fact

Fun Fact

We love food and we love agriculture. Sharing both with families who are excited to learn where their food comes from is the best part. Who doesn't love a day on the farm, surrounded by nature and lots of baby animals?

This is the 5th project posted by DG Educational Services.
