What did Alegria Community Living need?

Michael helped Alegria Community Living

Why is this project important?

Alegria is in an exciting place. Our current services are very stable and we are ready to grow. We run very lean in terms of our administration so any help we can receive preparing us for this growth would be much appreciated. A grant template would allow us to move in this direction with various projects that come our way.

This project will save us $5,140, allowing us to begin saving for much needed items for the 22 individuals living in the homes we support.

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.

What did they have to say?

Michael is amazing to work with. He really gave me a fresh look at our agency and how to say what we do differently. He provided a nice template that I will be able to use for other grant projects! Thank you Michael!!! Karen

Karen was very pleasant to work with and I can only say positive things about the experience. We were both new to the process, so we had an additional skype call where we laid out expectations, timelines, and the like. She provided the information I needed and allowed me to get to work. Thanks to her and I wish her and Alegria the best of luck!
