Grant Writing Services

We use proven strategies and tactics to effectively secure programmatic grants and sponsorships for events. Our grant writing service is a three-step approach: assessment, action plan, and execution with ongoing support to provide a framework that has been demonstrated to increase and sustain significant corporate and foundation revenue for nonprofit organizations.

  • Assessment: We acquire and maintain a sound knowledge and understanding of the organization to fully comprehend all of the programs or projects potentially eligible for grants. Through interviews and other means, we gather information to grasp the programmatic initiatives for which the organization is seeking support. We research grant-making organizations and analyze them to identify likely funding sources for the organization’s mission.
  • Action Plan: We establish initial contact with funders and attend potential funding meetings. We review the budget for the project or initiative and make recommendations to best submit to grant-making organizations. We develop individual grant proposals in accordance with each grant-making organization’s preferences and guidelines.
  • Execution and Beyond: Our team will package and/or electronically submit applications on behalf of the organization when authorized to do so; keep in contact with grant-making organizations during their review of a submitted grant application; manage the process of supplying progress reports when required; create evaluation tools and prepare funder reports, as needed; and correspond either by phone, email or in person with staff, as necessary.
