Dawn Helsing Wolters (Director of College Grants): Ready to start thinking about grant-seeking? Need help finding possible funders? Have a funder and opportunity in mind? She’s your first stop! Dawn leads the pre-award process which includes identifying funders, understanding the guidelines, assisting with idea development, proposal preparation and supporting documentation, and is Gettysburg’s AOR (Authorized Organizational Representative) for grants submitted by the College.

Katie Weigle (Associate Director of College Grants): Her strength is de-mystifying budgets from the beginning of the proposal process to closing out the award once it’s complete. She will assist with developing the budget and justification during the proposal process, help track the spending, and work directly with you to ensure the award process goes smoothly. She also monitors grant compliance.

Vikki Slaybaugh (Administrative Assistant): Our eagle-eye proofreader, logistics person, and keeper of the details. Vikki keeps everyone moving forward to make sure every detail is in place (letters of support, signatures, etc), and can facilitate proposal delivery as needed. Most importantly, she will do a final edit of all proposals as well as keep track of the communication between the College and the funder.
