Ghost Writer LLC Elevates Grant Specialist to Agency Advocate to Build Better Communities

Professional fundraising counsel Ghost Writer LLC has promoted former grant specialist Clay Cordell to agency advocate. In the Ghost Writer business model, the agency advocate serves as the primary contact point for nonprofit organizations and coordinates projects for clients across Ghost Writer’s team.

Cordell serves as Ghost Writer’s presence in the Harrisonburg, Va., area. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, Cordell started working with Ghost Writer in October 2022. In his new role as agency advocate, he now focuses on connecting with clients and organizing projects in grants management, marketing, and donor database management. While his work has less of a focus on writing grants, he still writes grants for his clients from time to time.

“It’s gratifying to see these organizations succeed and expand their reach, and it’s very cool to play a small supporting role in that.” says Cordell. “I’m always encouraged by the ways our clients engage with and give back to their communities. It’s easy to lose track of how crucial community is in a world where we are increasingly connected to national and global events, but our communities are so important to the way we all live day-to-day.”

“We’re exceptionally pleased to have Clay fill this role,” says Ghost Writer CEO, Kirsten Hubbard. “He consistently comes up with creative solutions to engage with the missions of our clients and strengthen their communities, and we’re grateful that he has chosen to contribute his talents to Ghost Writer to help us write a better human story.”

Who We Are

The Franklin County Free Press, established by Vicky Taylor in 2019, emerged as a beacon of local journalism for the residents of Franklin County. Under Vicky's leadership, it quickly became an essential source of news, particularly at a time when major newspaper publications were increasingly overlooking local coverage.

On January 1, 2022, the torch was passed to Nathan Neil and his firm, Neil Publishing, LLC. Neil, a local entrepreneur with multiple thriving businesses in Chambersburg, shares Vicky's fervent commitment to both the community and the world of local journalism.

Rooted in the heart of Franklin County and powered by its residents, the Franklin County Free Press continues to bridge the gap, ensuring that the local stories, events, and issues that matter most to the community remain in the spotlight.
