We write for all types of grant proposals, including federal, state, county, city, private foundation and corporate giving.
We can provide grant source research to identify potential funding opportunities for project concepts. We’ll closely monitor government grant availability and utilize local databases of thousands of foundation and corporate giving sources.
When we gather resources and information to create your grant, we’ll not only help you identify specific financial targets, but also help you justify your need for these dollars. We’ll apply the same level of scrutiny as your funder to help vet this document for success.
In addition, we can help you develop the measurement resources necessary to prove that a funder’s gift has been well utilized. And once all due-diligence is complete, we’ll help you do it all again.
Assess Grant Readiness
We'll take a peek at what grant materials we need to collect or create vs. what grant materials you have. We'll develop an action list for moving forward.
Develop Grant Matrix & Calendar
Timing is everything in the grant world. We'll identify critical deadlines and develop an internal agreement for when everything will be in order for each project.
Collect & Customize Grant Materials
We'll gather all the required documents and data for your grant project. We'll proofread, double-check and clean up to documents for easy reading. If something is missing, we'll let you know and develop a strategy for delivering.
Organize and Edit Project Materials
We'll start trimming, rearranging and putting together the skeleton of your grant proposal based on the requirements of the funder.
Only after all this hard work do we begin putting the pen to the page. We'll fill in in missing information and tell the best version of your story possible.
Editing & Revision
We'll do an editing sweep and send a draft for review. . From there, your project goes out into the world at large.
Every grant has a unique requirements. Some are submitted online. Some require 20 copies hand delivered. Regardless of the requirements, we'll make sure your grant is submitted on time and looking as sharp as possible.
In conjunction with any grant proposal, you must state your anticipated outcomes and outputs. Funders are becoming increasingly serious about data-driven results. We can craft, record and analyze psychometrically sound surveys to measure and evaluate the efficacy of your programs.
Due-Dilligence Review & Coaching
As your grant is under review, we will coach your team through the due-dillegence to increase your chance of being successfully funded. This includes a review of all accompanying documents as well as rehearsing face-to-face or phone meetings with the potential funder.
Advise Client on Data Requirements
Your funder is expecting to see results for their investment. We will help you develop a strategy for collecting the proper data to share with the funder in a follow-up report.
At the end of the funding period (and prior to requesting additional funds) we must report on the outcomes of the funded activity. We will work with you to create a narrative document that covers both the objective and subjective results of your program.
Rinse, Lather & Repeat
We'll put on another pot of coffee and get ready to raise funds for the next grant cycle.
