What did Sarah have to offer?
As someone who has fought for the inclusion of community voices in global development solutions, I find Seacology's project approach to conservation fascinating. I have a particular interest in how community solutions to managing critical natural resources can address challenges of economic and environmental sustainability so I am keen to learn more about Seacology's process and to support their projects through this prospect research. While fundraising has not always been the core focus of my professional expertise, during my time with the Bank Information Center and ALTSEAN-Burma I was involved in the different aspects of fundraising, such as managing current funder relationships, researching new fundraising opportunities, and drafting grant proposals and donor reports. I have also already conducted a similar prospect research project through Catchafire for another organization focused on climate change, so am already familiar with the landscape of donors in the areas where Seacology works, such as conservation and community engagement.
