Diana Holder - Senior International Research Specialist & Content Curator

An Introduction to Diana Holder
Senior International Research Specialist & Content Curator

Diana Holder

I joined the GrantStation team a decade ago, following stints working at a major foundation in Los Angeles, serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in El Salvador, and teaching English to speakers of other languages in Guatemala, San Francisco, and Spain. What I like most about my role as an international research specialist and content curator at GrantStation is that it allows me to meld my varied interests and professional experience.

My research role is focused on helping organizations working outside the U.S. to find funding opportunities. I update records in GrantStation’s International and Canadian databases, while also researching and adding new funders on a continuous basis. I also put together the International Insider and Canadian Insider newsletters to inform folks of upcoming funding opportunities. The process of writing these newsletters is quite enjoyable, as it enables me to keep up on the latest trends in the international funding arena, while also providing valuable content for our Members.

In addition, I curate content for GrantStation's PathFinder library, with an eye towards helping even the novice grant proposal writer or nonprofit professional to access resources to aid in their professional development or make their job easier in some way.

My research for the newsletters and PathFinder library serves as fodder for the blog articles that I write for the GS Insights blog each month.

Every spring, I also edit the State of Grantseeking report, working alongside Ellen Mowrer and Juliet Vile to provide original and timely research on the grantseeking experience of organizations of various sizes and mission focuses.
