Dan Baron Consulting

About: Dan Baron Consulting

For more than 20 years, my work has started from a simple premise. Many organizations – whether they are nonprofits, universities, state agencies or others – have a great story to tell about pivotal issues. That can mean building an innovative youth program, passing a law that fights housing discrimination, stopping elder abuse and much more.

Over the years, I have worked as a strategist, communications consultant and grant writer for dozens of organizations. I have faith that a strong partnership, a great story and a creative and affordable approach to telling your story will get the job done – whether that means developing a communications strategy, writing a federal grant, producing an anniversary report or creating fresh content for your website.

I also have a master’s in journalism from Northwestern and worked for several years as a journalist and columnist.

Making an Impact

Dan helped our organization by researching funding prospects, writing grant proposals, editing stories and, most of all, researching and writing a detailed case statement about our work. The result was a document that coherently, and persuasively, tells our story—and how our work is making an impact in communities.
