Foundation & Grants Manager
As CLLC’s Foundation & Grants Manager, Sarah oversees the Center’s portfolio of public and private grants from proposal development to close-out. Drawing on a decade of experience working with growing, mission driven organizations to design and manage their grants management and operational capacities, Sarah focuses on building out the systems and processes that allow program teams to focus on the important work of preserving landscape connectivity.
Over the course of her career, Sarah has benefitted from the opportunity to work with passionate colleagues around the world in a breadth of development fields including conservation, smallholder finance and financial inclusion, modern slavery, mental health, and youth employment. Most recently, she managed the rapidly expanding grant portfolio for Rare, Inc’s global marine conservation program, Fish Forever. Prior to Rare, she worked for the Global Development Incubator, where she also managed grants, financial reporting, as well as domestic and international operations.
As a recent transplant to the Bozeman area, she’s looking forward to exploring the local cycling scene and hopes to discover the best music venues in the area to continue her love of small, up and coming bands.
