Grant Writing Services

business-money-pink-coinsI specialize in helping both small and large organizations grow. I study its inner workings and the psychology of it – the successful ones and the fallen. I love to work with passionate individuals and help turn their visions into reality. Most importantly, I don’t waste time with fancy jargon or complex systems that do not work. I know from personal experience what businesses need, and offer simple, practical solutions for getting the job done. In many cases, it  all starts with money. Since 2010, I’ve secured over 2.3 Million dollars for small business and non profit organizations.

I provide the following grant writing and planning services. Fees are approximate – exact fee will be agreed upon prior to beginning the contract. Since every client has unique needs, it is difficult to give an accurate price estimate until I speak with you in person. If you have any questions, just ask. Advice is always FREE and I always maintain a high level of confidentiality for clients.

Foundation & Government-Grant Research ($500-$900)

It is very important to know your audience before writing anything. And finding the right audience is critical. We will conduct a comprehensive assessment of the funding landscape as it pertains to your organization; upon completion of you will receive a written report summarizing the findings and recommendations, as well as a debrief by phone. The report will include a ranked list of prospective funders, a grants calendar, a description of each prospect and a list of proposal requirements. From the initial interview to delivery of the final report is usually five (5) business days.

Grant Proposals ($600- $6,000+)

After taking the time to learn about our organization and your program, we will write you a competitive grant proposal, customized to the grantmaker’s interests. Most foundation proposals ($600-$2,000) are simple and can be completed in a matter of days, while government and public safety (Police Departments, Fire Departments, EMS) proposals ($3,000-$8,000) typically require extensive planning, research and coordination among various stakeholders. I have the experience to serve in a number of capacities, whether you need a consultant to manage the process from start to finish or fill an adjunct role as a editor/ content creator. You will also save considerably by hiring me to write proposals in batches.

Letter of Inquiry: $450

Most foundations will require a 2-page letter of inquiry prior to submitting a full proposal. We will write a compelling letter to get you in the door.

Adjunct Development/ Sub-contracting: $55-$110 hour

The rate corresponds to the complexity of the project and my role in the process. These rates are competitive when compared to other professionals with the same level of experience; one can certainly find lower cost providers however, you will find none with a similar combination of personal and professional experience.
