Past Speaker

Sindy Beckerle is a grant administrator who focuses her work in the fields of classical Christian education and crisis pregnancy centers. She has been writing grants for over 15 years. After homeschooling her two children for several years, she and a few friends began a homeschool coop called Grand County Home Educators in Colorado. The coop exploded in the small community and a desire for a Christian school was birthed. Through research and partnering with a local church who also had the desire to begin a Christian school, Sindy and her husband, Ed, with a group of excited parents and the local church began Winter Park Christian School. By the second year of WPCS, they moved to the classical method with a strong biblical worldview. Sindy became the school office administrator at WPCS working closely with the head of school. The need for funding for the school drove Sindy to learn about fundraising and grant writing. She began taking coursework and researching grant writing through local and state resources. As her skills developed, her success with grant writing improved. Her passion is to help others learn how to seek funding through grant writing. She desires to share her knowledge learned over years to help make the paths of others smoother and more profitable. Having written over $1,000,000 in grants, she believes she uses the skills God has given her to put the request to the funder, but He gives all blessings. Currently living in the Hill Country of Texas, she loves exploring new places, traveling, and working full time in the field of grant writing and fundraising in both Colorado and Texas.
