Grant Writing

We conduct the necessary prospect research to find funder matches and create compelling narratives and reports that encourage foundations and government donors to fund your programs and services.

Our grant writing team customizes our grant writing engagements depending on the needs of our clients. Some clients outsource their entire foundation and corporate proposal development function to our team, and we oversee pipeline management, grant writing, and report writing. Other clients hire us to expand their grant writing capacity during busy periods or when they experience staff transitions. We also support clients on complex federal proposals to assist with proposal strategy, meeting facilitation, and proposal development. We charge an hourly rate for our services depending on the consultant, project, and client budget.

Grant Writing Offerings

Discovery - We meet with clients to understand organizational needs and programs for which grants are sought. These meetings provide insight into program goals and objectives, implementation plans, performance measures, organizational capacity, and budget. We utilize past proposals and other supporting documents to inform the process when available.
Prospect Research - We conduct prospect research to identify public and private funding sources that match our client's funding needs using a range of databases and search engines and leverage our affiliations with professional associations to identify funding opportunities.
Proposal Writing - We embark on an iterative proposal writing process that includes drafting the narrative, advising clients on completing required forms, and identifying or creating supporting documents and attachments. All drafts are sent to the client for review, input, and final approval. Before submission, we work with clients to review and edit the entire grant application packet to ensure it adheres to guidelines.
Funder Reports - We work with clients on report preparation templates to collect and share data when reports are due. Our team supports clients in the development of report narratives and financial attachments.
Pipeline Management - We develop grant calendars to help manage the funding pipeline, including proposal and report deadlines. Depending on the client's desired format, the team can create this pipeline in a document, spreadsheet, or utilize various project management software tools.
