Ann Ronan, Ph.D.

Have you spent precious time writing proposals that were not funded?

You’ve come to the right place! I provide grant-related consulting, coaching and writing services for nonprofit clients around the globe. I specialize in writing governmental grants – federal, state, county and city. (Please note, I only work with nonprofit agencies, schools and hospitals.) I provide services (with gentleness and humor) via phone, fax, e-mail, and express mail (and in person if you’d like). Give me a call or send an email so I can get to know you and determine how I can best serve your organization.

“Ann is a true expert in the world of grant writing. Her knowledge and skill have brought more than a million dollars in grant awards to our agency. She brings warmth and humor to the stressful process of meeting grant deadlines. Our entire team enjoys working with her. I highly recommend her services.” Teresa Smith, Executive Director Catholic Charities of Orange County

“Ann is an invaluable resource to UCP-OC.  I look forward to working with Ann on every grant as she has the knowledge, sophistication, experience and writing skills to pull together complex concepts required for high level research grants and does it with grace, efficiency and ease.  She is a true partner in helping us reach our vision.”   Cathleen Collins, Chief Executive Officer, United Cerebral Palsy of Orange County
