Grant Development Corps

As part of LA n Sync's mission to pursue and win funding for greater Los Angeles, we have assembled a team of talented grant developers. Our Grant Development Corps is comprised of highly-experienced professionals – all vetted by LA n Sync, all with successful major grant applications under their belts. They do more than write; they work with nonprofits on everything from program design and evaluation to shepherding the application through every step of the process. We encourage you to use our Grant Development Corps List as a resource when searching for a grant professional to work with your organization.
