Patty Winter
Projects for Nonprofits

I tell stories that get results
Because of my marketing communications background, I can assist nonprofits with many different types of development and marketing pieces. In addition to grant proposals, I can write website copy, brochures, newsletters, public service announcements, and other materials for a wide range of audiences, including donors, volunteers, and service recipients.

In some cases, I was asked not to post the full piece on my website, but I was given permission to send the redacted copy to individuals on request. Please let me know if you would like to see one of those proposals.
