Join us for an in-depth discussion on becoming a grants consultant.

She is the proud owner of Cain Nonprofit Solutions, a consultancy offering grant writing, research, web development, and eTraining services to arts and culture nonprofits and co-own Painted Post Publications along with her business partner, Bruce Ripley.
