Ceci Grano De Oro
Senior Operations and Contract Specialist
Ceci is an educator at heart whose work spans the K-12, higher education, and college access landscapes. When she isn’t working with high school students as they navigate and explore their college admissions journeys, she’s collaborating with local non-profits and CBOs in the South Florida region to make meaningful gains towards college access, equity, and inclusion for students from underrepresented communities. When she isn’t working with her team, Ceci is running after her two boys, trying to make it to yoga class on time, and hanging out with her annoyingly cute rescue Chiweenie, Amanda (aka Amy for short).
Working as a grant writer with Giant Squid Group means finding and facilitating funding opportunities for diverse non-profits around the country as they work to make meaningful, long-term impacts in their communities. Our partnership with Mission Accomplished allows us to support an organization fully committed to building a community of leaders and entrepreneurs poised to change the world through passion, innovation, and creativity!
