My name is Katie LeDoux and I am the Executive Director of this unique company based in Omaha, NE. My friends would describe me as dedicated, creative, diligent, and festive. At Sunflower, my team and I provide highly personalized grant research and grant writing services to all types of organizations – small and large, nonprofit and for-profit.
I grew up in Saint Louis, MO and spent the first 18 years of my career living and working in Washington, DC. My husband and I moved to Omaha in May 2017 and we are very happy to call this area home. Since launching my company in 2020, I have been able to secure grants ranging from $5,000 to $700,000: grants that helped to fund wish lists including arts programs for kids, city development and health care expansion. I have also helped small organizations and small businesses obtain federal funding, such as through the CARES Act and ARPA.
My nonprofit experience spans 18 years at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Kennedy Center. While at these amazing places, I spent many hours getting grants for programs and public art projects.
At Sunflower, I am here with my team to research possibilities, write and submit grants, and complete any reporting at the end of the process on your behalf. Essentially, my goal is to help your business fulfill its goals. And as we begin to dig into things, you may be surprised to find out how many relevant grants there are out there for your organization. One thing that sets Sunflower apart is the focused, personalized attention that you receive during our work together and the depth and breadth of my nonprofit experience.
