Green Seeds provides a full range of grant and fund development services for nonprofit organizations. Mr. Terry Rumsey, President of Green Seeds, is personally available to assist your organization through all the critical steps of assessing, developing, marketing, and managing your grants program and other fundraising efforts.

Green Seeds can play the role that is best suited to your unique needs – from providing consultation on a single project to ongoing, hands-on management of your grant program and other fundraising campaigns.


Grant Consultation

We will meet with you to review and assess your current grant proposals, grant-seeking strategies, and grant management practices.

Grant Writing

 We will write a “core” grant proposal that can be used as a template for all your future grant writing efforts. We will also write customized grant proposals for specific programs, initiatives, or requests for proposals from foundations or government agencies.

Grant Research

We will mine a wide range of data bases and grant publications to identify corporations, foundations, government agencies, and other funding sources that are the best prospects for awarding your organization a grant. We will prepare a customized grants schedule that lists the funding sources, submission deadlines, decision-making timelines, granting criteria, and other key information that you need to guide your organization’s grant-seeking efforts over the upcoming year.
