About the Presenters

Jeremy Smith –  Communications & Technology Director

Connecting a nonprofit with funding has become a real point of enjoyment for him as he updates and develops new looks and features for the website. His goal is to make the process of finding funding the easiest part of the grant process. Hearing about the organizations that have not only received funding but found the information through GrantStation – or via the Insider newsletters – is an excellent indicator of this success. Jeremy not only deals with GrantStation’s internal and external tech issues, but also manages the Insider and International Insider newsletters. Contact Jeremy if you are interested in sending a custom version of our funding newsletters to your organization. Jeremy volunteers at a local radio station and hosts a weekly, tech-based radio program General Protection Fault.

Sara Kennedy, Director of Online Education

Sara has been with GrantStation since February of 2007 and brings with her the experience of executive director for a local nonprofit. She also worked with the Veteran’s Administration as a research assistant for over a decade.

Sara serves as GrantStation’s Director of Online Education. She is responsible for bringing the best of grantwriting expertise to your office or home through a variety of GrantStation webinars. Sara also provides personalized tours of the GrantStation website, including a training platform to help you get the most from GrantStation’s many online resources.
