Esther has successfully researched, written and funded two grant proposals with private funding organizations. She enjoys giving back to the community and making the world a better place, both for the current generation and the generations to come. She believes that individuals can make a difference in their environment, and it's better to try and fail than to never attempt something new in the first place. She has researched many funding opportunities for civic-minded organizations, even if they did not go on to write a grant proposal. Her experience is primarily with finding private funding for non-profit 501c3 designated groups.
