We will meet with you to review and assess your current grant proposals, grant-seeking strategies, and grant management practices.
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.
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.
We will manage your entire grants program by providing ongoing grant research, proposal writing, proposal submission, communication with prospective funding sources during the decision-making process, technical assistance for grant implementation, and grant reporting over the course of a year or on an multi-year basis.
We will work with your board, staff members, and key leaders to review and assess your mission, goals and objectives, organizational structure, financial practices, and program management. All successful fundraising begins with a healthy organization – we can provide an organizational check up!
