Amanda Robins (She, Her, Hers)
Amanda first gained experience working with federal grants as Program Manager for a Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) funded program in Washington State. Following that role, she moved on to be a grant reviewer for other organizations hoping to secure similar funding from FYSB, moving from a grant reviewer to a panel lead. In addition to robust experience in writing and reviewing federal grants, Amanda has also written many corporate and foundation grant proposals, with a focus on human services nonprofits. Amanda earned a Master’s in Public Administration with a concentration in Nonprofit Management, including coursework in grant writing, program evaluation, non-profit finance, and governance, from University of Washington, Evans School of Public Policy and Governance. She loves to put her degree to work helping organizations understand how each of these pieces plays an important role in the grant lifecycle.
Amanda lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and their dog Maggie. She loves to get outside and go mountain biking, hiking, climbing, and skiing. Born and raised in Philadelphia, she is an Eagles fan and Phillies fan despite the heartbreak that might bring.
My favorite thing about this work: I love helping organizations bring in funding that helps them to make a bigger impact in their communities and build sustainable programs that will last for years to come.
