Grant Manager, SKETCH Working Arts. Also Writer, Performer, Arts Educator

Paulina O’Kieffe-Anthony has been successfully writing grants for the last 15 years. Her work in the not-for- profit and arts and culture sectors have given her multiple opportunities to support organizations and individuals (including herself) to successfully acquire funding for projects and ongoing operations. Paulina’s expertise lies in her understanding of the arts and public funding grants processes as well as having significant exposure to granting bodies through her experience as a past grant reviewer for the Toronto Arts Council, the Director for ArtReach, a smaller youth project funder and currently as the Grants Manager for SKETCH Working Arts. 

To date Paulina has acquired over half a million dollars in grant funding for organizations and individuals from funders such as Canadian Heritage, RBC Emerging Artist Fund, City of Toronto, Toronto Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council and more.
