Welcome To GrantsEdge
We’re Thrilled You Found Us
We’re Thrilled You Found Us
The GrantsEdge team understands how hard grant writing can be. Like you, we’ve faced the same overwhelming challenges. We’ve received the dreaded ‘thanks, but no thanks’ letters, had to tell an Executive Director or Board the grant wasn’t successful, and struggled with seeing programs cease to exist.
We didn’t like how that felt. So we decided to do something about it.
We went on a quest to find the key strategies for grant writing success. We wanted to make grant writing easier.
We talked to hundreds of funders and grant writers to learn their secrets to writing grants that get funded.
We used what we learned to help nonprofits and charities, just like yours, secure millions of dollars through grant writing. In workshops and courses, we’ve taught others how they can do it too. The great news is anyone can learn to write awesome grants, even if they haven’t been successful before.
It’s Time To Meet The GrantsEdge Team

Nicole has helped non-profits and charities secure millions of dollars through government, corporate, and foundation funding opportunities. At GrantsEdge, Nicole spends most of her time focusing on strategic growth. She’s inspired to build solutions that offer enormous value for the GrantsEdge community. You should also know that Nicole loves strategy, evaluation, adventure, and travel in equal parts. We advise you not to bring up these topics, unless you want her to talk your ear off…you’ve been warned.
Sheila Simpson is the Manager of GrantsEdge. For the past 17 years, Sheila served as a Program Manager for the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
