Cynthia Adams, Grantstation Founder

Cynthia has been dedicated to helping nonprofit organizations identify and secure the funding they need to do their good work for well over 40 years. She founded GrantStation because she believes that grantseeking requires a thorough understanding of the funders and sound knowledge of the philanthropic playing field. Her life's work has been to level that playing field, creating opportunities for all nonprofit organizations, regardless of size or geographic location, to secure grant support.
