MEET THE WOMAN BEHIND THE SCENES
Hello! I'm Vannessa Lindsey, and I am the Founder of the Nonprofit Founders' Club. I started this club out of my love for nonprofits and my passion to help other new and aspiring individuals start, grow and secure funding for their nonprofit organizations. I'm the creator of Concept to Funding Mastering The Essentials of Grant-writing, a 6-week online intensive program that teaches Nonprofit Founders how to write competitive grant proposals.
I am also the founder of Another Choice, Another Chance which I started in 1987. Over the years I secured over 30 million dollars in grants and contracts and have served over 15,000 youth and families. I started my nonprofit with no expereince, limited education, limited money and an inactive board. Sound Familiar? I love to teach others how it can be done. You Ready?.
