Grant Writing Services
Our consultants have access to subscription-based databases like GrantWatch which they use to meticulously review thousands of possible grants for our clients. Upon identifying grants ( a minimum of 3 per month) consultants develop a list of strong matches with grantmakers and your organization. This report can stand alone for your own in-house use, or as a starting point for us to assist with grant writing.
PROOFREADING AND EDITING
Consultant (s) proofread your grant proposals before you submit them, making sure your message is clear and that you have followed the grant maker’s instructions. The second set of eyes on your proposal is always important. Due to the career experience and knowledge of our team, your agency’s grant application will stand apart from the rest.
This is one of our core grant writing services. Working closely with your staff, we complete your grant application, proposal, or letter of inquiry. In addition, we make sure It’s competitive and thorough. Foundation grant fees may be based on a per-hour rate based upon review by the consultant as not all grants require the same amount of labor hours.
GRANT WRITING CONTRACTS
We offer ongoing contracts among our grant writing services for nonprofit organizations. These three-month to one-year agreements include an array of grant writing services. This means monthly we research grant opportunities, write highly competitive grant proposals, and participate in debriefs with funders on rejected proposals. We work to build long-term relationships with foundations following a successful proposal. With these contracts, we act as much more than a writer. We serve as consultants to help ensure the long-term success of the grants program and the agency.
GRANT WRITING CONSULTATIONS AND TRAINING
Our grant writing services include private coaching sessions. In these sessions, we make suggestions and offer advice for your grant proposals. This includes offering insight on why you may not have received funding in the past and what you can do to improve your proposals to be more competitive. We also offer an in-depth, personalized, training program to teach you and your staff to write successful grants. Most importantly, this helps you build a sustainable grant writing program in-house.
FEDERAL AND STATE GRANTS
In a close partnership with your team, we lead the writing and submission of highly technical and involved government grants. After that, we ensure your narrative is strong. Finally, we verify that your entire application package meets the rigorous standards laid out by the agency.
PROGRAM IMPLEMENTATION MANAGEMENT
Many agencies after being awarded a grant struggle to implement the program and track program success. To assist our clients beyond the grant writing process, our consultants work with staff to strengthen leadership skills and implement process improvement policies and procedures to ensure the agency and grant’s success.
ORGANIZATION AND PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT
Not every nonprofit is quite ready to write grants — and be competitive for funding. We assess your organization for grant readiness and then compile and implement a detailed plan of action for the program and organizational development. All of these grant writing services will help your nonprofit become grant ready.
