Sam has successful experience with numerous federal and foundation grants including National Endowment for the Arts, AmeriCorps, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and private, faith-based foundations.

“My favorite part of grant writing is learning about different approaches to common community challenges, and empowering non-profits to continue their justice work.”
