We construct full proposals--"soup to nuts" as they say--including abstract, narrative, budgets, and attachments. Our projects have ranged from just a few pages to well over 80.
Nothing scares us.
We will review your existing funding leads and advise you on the highest leverage opportunities for your situation. We will also talk you OUT of a project we feel is not suited to your organization. No one likes to waste their time or money!
We do not charge for this service. Honest opinions are always free.
We can review the existing suite of documents you send ahead and/or leave behind with prospective funders. We'll give you advice on what to include, what to leave out, and how to show off your amazing results. (Hey, it's not "bragging" if it's TRUE!)
You DO have such documents, right?
If you decide to (GASP!) go it alone, we can review your application at one or two distinct points of progress, advise you on what works, and identify what is missing or needed. Your team can then revise.
We prefer not to rewrite your narrative efforts. We either write from scratch, or we review and comment.
Yes, we do custom (or canned) workshops, present energetically at conferences, and speak entertainingly and intelligently whenever we "fit". Want to bring Grantsformation to you? Click the button below to connect and inquire:
We do not charge by the hour, and we do not charge a retainer. We also do not take a percent of your winnings, and our fee is not based on how much money you are requesting. (We have a complicated, voo-doo-like system for determining that.)
All projects are bid individually at a flat-fee rate. Once it's quoted, that's what you pay.
We do not work on contingency--neither does the electric company (and we like our lights and heat). We are paid up front, whether or not your grant is funded, and we put all of our efforts into achieving a winning outcome.
"Net 30" means payment is due within 30 days of our mutual agreement to begin working. Typically, the full application will be due in this timeframe, and all work will have been completed. An exception to this is for new charter schools applying for startup funding. In these cases, we are happy to accept more flexible payment arrangements.
We're "handshake" kind of people, so we don't have a standard contract that we require you to sign before we begin working on your project. If you have one, we're happy to comply with your process. We can also give you a scope of work document upon request. Otherwise, we'll just email you our bid and get to work.
