I’m Lani,
writer and grants professional.

Community-based organizations have the power to make a profound difference in the lives of the people and families they serve. However, these nonprofits often face challenges in securing the necessary funding to sustain their programs or expand their reach.

I can provide the support needed to overcome these obstacles and enable you to continue making a positive impact on your community. Let me help you do what you do best — help others.

I am a professional grant writer with a passion for helping others, specializing in environmental protection and nature conservation, sustainable food systems, and advocating for racial and gender justice.

My unique background in psychology and research equips me with strong analytical skills and a deep understanding of human behavior, allowing me to craft compelling narratives that connect with funders and inspire action.
