Grants can be a huge financial aid to strapped nonprofits and small businesses, but researching funders and writing grants that adhere to their strict parameters is also a huge time suck. Here are some of the services I offer to ease this burden:
Potential Funders Search
- Research and create a list of potential funders based on client’s mission, geographic location, and type of funding they are seeking.
- Client receives alphabetized binder and soft copies (word documents) of information sheets on each funder
- Write a full proposal for state, federal, or foundations grants in advance of deadline, following funder’s guidelines
- Provide suggestions for communication with funder and supplementary materials
- This may include anything from simple proof reading or a deeper content edit and critique
Letter of Inquiry/Interest
- Write a Letter of Inquiry or Letter of Interest to funders that require such documents before a full proposal, in advance of deadline, following given guidelines
Gold Standard Proposal Template
- Creation of a full proposal template that contains all components found in most full grant applications.
- A great solution if you have a project idea in need of funding and funders already lined up
