The Funding Team members are specialists in Accounting, Editing, Education, Grantwriting and Requests for Proposals, Marketing, Strategic Planning, Technology Platform Training, and Nonprofit Start-ups. We owe our success to our team. Currently our team of eight experts are plenty; but, as community needs increase new members will be added to the team.

Founding Team
Chris & Laura Gothard

As founders of Funding Solutions we love our role in the community. We have been blessed to help non-profit organizations and ministries do important community work. Taking care of the under-served of our community is God's work and it is our honor to help organizations be their very best.  With over 30 years in community based work - it is still our first love. 

Accounting Team
Connor & Elsie

Connor and Elsie have been the backbone of our accounting work plans for a number of years. Their work is essential to every project undertaken.  Nonprofit decisions can be traced back to "the numbers" and sources of funding impact future decisions. Whether organization budgets, payroll, insurance comps, grant budgets or board reports, the work of this team is never done.

Grantwriting Team
Ashley, Chanell, Laurel, and Sam

Ashley, Chanell, Laurel, and Sam make up our wonderful circle of writers, editors, and graphic  artists. They work on several projects each week: Touching Veteran Causes, Literacy, Services for the Disabled, Inner-city Youth Services, Fighting Hunger, Outdoor Adventures for Under-served Mothers and Children, Combating Human-trafficking, and Championing Performing Arts in Fresno County. This team of creative writers prepare grant proposals for complex applications and a variety of funding initiatives. Together, we have secured millions of dollars over the years for local nonprofits who are providing essential community services.
