Hello everyone! My name is Patrick Laorden. I currently serve as a grants associate with the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving in Connecticut. I'm excited to be in philanthropy full-time. I have experienced working with grants, more on the grant-seeking side of things, having served as a grants consultant and volunteer grant writer. I'm new to grants management and to Foundant. I look forward to getting to know Foundant more in depth and the Compass community.
