The mission of the Impact Finance Center (IFC) is to catalyze investments that produce enduring value for the investor, society, and the environment.
IFC had an opportunity to apply for a large grant from Partners in Places, a program of the MacArthur Foundation. However, the grant was cumbersome and had a quick turnaround time. In addition, IFC offers a complex value proposition.
IFC called Canopy for support. Grant writer Jennifer Kelly was able to develop and synthesize the complex content and a unique partnership with local government to write a compelling story for the organization. She is now writing additional grants and editing IFC communications on an ongoing basis.
