Hi, I’m Susan Mernit, an accomplished fundraising and development consultant. With experience in arts, education, workforce development, and tech equity non-profits like The Crucible and Hack the Hood, I have a reputation for strategic thinking and delivering results. I work collaboratively with teams to develop equitable programs, funding strategies, pitches, and proposals.
I bring a range of essential skills to the table, including strong listening abilities, persuasive writing, communication, and excellent project management. When it comes to development planning, I consider the organization’s perspective, the funder’s needs, and the program participants’ goals. By crafting compelling narratives backed by data, I engage funders, build authentic relationships, and ensure measurable outcomes.
I focus on securing grants, partnerships, and corporate sponsorships while diversifying revenue from a mission-driven perspective. I also offer facilitation, systems, and processes to support this work, and board coaching, training, and development in these areas.
