About Me

Hi! I’m Wendie Veloz and I’m here to help you move your social cause forward! I have over 15 years of experience in the federal, state, and local government. My work supporting states and communities in public and mental health has resulted in over $35 million dollars of social programs directly benefiting communities across the U.S. and beyond.

I’ve worked with the U.S. Department of Education, the Department of Health and Human Services- (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration), the U.S. Department of Justice and supported over 20 states and 30 communities.

I have a Master of Science in Social Welfare Policy from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of California, Irvine.

My Vision

  • Create the opportunity for health, education, and equality by leveling the playing field for communities who need resources.
  • Strong, self-sufficient communities who can identify their needs and access funding.
  • Support minority business owners, BIPOC-serving non-profit organizations, and researchers of color to serve their communities.

My Mission

  • Provide low-barrier education about how to seek and obtain funding at the federal, state, and local levels.
  • Coach people and organizations that are promoting social change, especially at the grass-roots level.
  • Disrupt the funding cycle by empowering people and communities with knowledge about how to get funding for social progress, including dismantling structural racism and bias.
