About Christy Olsen Field

Hi! Thanks for your interest in Christy Ink.

What I do

Grantwriting is the intersection of two loves of mine: writing and philanthropy. Nothing inspires me more than a mission-driven organization! At Christy Ink, I offer affordable, full-service grantwriting, from prospect research to final reporting.


I work with small to mid-size nonprofit organizations (< $1M annual budget) to build a thriving grant program. My work is done remotely, but I keep in close touch by phone and email so you are involved in every step of the grant process.


Don’t have a development director? That’s great! I bring my 8+ years of nonprofit experience with communications and fundraising to help with annual fund solicitations, social media, Guidestar, and more.


Grantwriting is a critically important component of sustainable fundraising. Let’s get together to talk about your organization’s immediate needs and dreams for the future.

Prospect Research

I research and build a list of foundation and corporate funding opportunities that fit your organization’s needs. This can be turned into your annual grants plan. Whether your organization has an active grants calendar or never submitted a grant, my research can energize your fundraising.


I develop compelling proposals to foundations and corporations. My full-service grantwriting includes proposal preparation, editing, telephone consultations, travel time to and from meetings, and deliver proposal or materials, if necessary. I can be a liaison with prospective and actual funders and your organization. In addition, I prepare budgets and attachments for grants, as well as final reports.


Guidestar is the leading online database for US nonprofits and foundations, accessed by more than 7 million people annually to make well-informed philanthropic decisions. A strong Guidestar profile can bring in new donors, grantors, and volunteers to your organization. I can help you strengthen your profile to attain Platinum level, which demonstrates the highest commitment to data transparency.

Other Projects?

Need help with creating your fundraising or marketing collateral? I can help with that! This includes mail and email solicitations, donor acknowledgement, marketing materials, and more.

My rate is based per hour. Please contact me by filling out the form at the bottom of this page for a quote.

Skills & Experience

Fund development is critically important in the non-profit world: Without a clear and realistic fundraising plan, your organization cannot live out its mission effectively or sustainably. But I can help with that!


I bring 8+ years of non-profit experience to the table, including grants, donor relations, annual campaign, planned giving, capital campaign, and special events.
