Arlington Education Foundation:
Imagination Library

AEF brings Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program to the communities of Arlington and Darrington.  Imagination Library promotes early childhood education through easy access to new books for children under 5 who receive a home library of 60 books. Over 1,000 families are registered, and for 34% of the families served, the Imagination Library is the primary source of books in their home.

Washington Kids in Transition:
Student HUB

Washington Kids in Transition is committed to providing basic needs support to homeless children in the Edmonds and Everett School Districts. A new program in partnership with the Edmonds School District created a HUB for families and students experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 school closures. At the HUB, families could access wifi, technology, laundry, learning, and other supports.

Robin is a talented grant writer who can take an idea, put it into the proper framework and write successful grant proposals. She has taken our organization to new levels of funding with grants for special projects. She listens, understands the organization and the need and is able to articulate a project with clarity and accuracy. She also understands the constraints of non-profit agencies and works quickly and efficiently. She is very supportive. The amount we have allocated for grant writing has returned to us many times over.
