My Background and Experience
I have spent the past 28 years building and strengthening the financial and organizational capacity of non-profit organizations. Over the span of my career, I have built an extensive portfolio of skill sets and knowledge in the areas of leadership development, organizational development and operations, program and service development, community engagement, and fund development.
In 2004, I established LP Coleman Contracting Services to provide capacity building technical assistance to nonprofits. Since 2004, I have assisted hundreds of nonprofits in their quest to strengthen their organization’s leadership, operations, programs and grant funding levels.
Over the past 13 years, I have secured more than $13 million in federal, state, national and local grant funding, managing more than $3,000,000 in grants for various organizations at any given time.
