Hire a Grant Writer

Does this sound like you?

  • Don’t have the time to write all of the endless grant proposals sitting in your inbox?
  • Unsure if there are even funders out there who will give you a shot? Are you sick and tired of feeling rejected by funding sources?
  • Can’t invest in full-time grant writing staff yet?

First and foremost, we are fundraisers. And we employ a strategic fundraising strategy for your grant needs. This strategy ensures that we find you the best, qualified prospects for your next project or program with the highest return on ROI. We don’t want to waste your time or money. I have a team of seasoned grant writers with a variety of sector backgrounds who can assist you.

How do we get started?

Grants Funding Strategy Study and Plan

  • We conduct a 30-minute preliminary interview to determine your exact needs, grant readiness, and the best team member to support you.
  • We have a grant kick-off meeting where you get to meet your grant writer, and we discuss your needs in greater depth.
  • Then we set off to determine your Grants Feasibility Study by conducting grant research of over 100+ grant sources.
  • We discuss these initial findings with you and then begin to contact each funding source personally to determine if your project is a good fit.
  • We will then finalize your Grants Strategy based on our research, calls, and expertise to provide you with a list of top funding sources (between 2 – 10) grants that we can focus on for the contract period.
  • Next, we develop a contract for a Grants Management Service based on the 2-10 grants that we identify and their complexity.
  • We set out to either develop or refine an existing grant template that will be yours forever more.
  • Finally, we get busy making applications and securing you the grants you need to fuel your mission.
