We can and do work throughout the world. We have successfully completed assignments in Russia, Brazil, Ghana, Israel, Cote d'Ivoire, Cameroon, and the Dominican Republic. We have a relationship with the United Nations and with WANGO - the World Association of Non-Governmental Agencies.

Professional grantwriting services can be expensive, especially for organizations located in developing countries. Here's how we can make them affordable:

We can train your own people - staff or volunteers -on how to win grant funding from governmental agencies or private foundations. We will come to your location for anywhere from a day to a month and show you how the grantmaking world works.

We have three modules:

  • How to think about your project - (the seven questions you need to answer).

  • How to find the best funder for your project.

  • How to write a compelling, successful proposal.

We can deliver this package in a day, but for best results, you should allow a full week. Each topic will be presented over a day's time, with opportunities for hands-on experience and questions and answers. The rest of the week can be used to work with people on real projects for which they are seeking funding.

We also have a program on how to conceptualize and write an evaluation plan that helps you to win the grant. Poor evaluation plans - required by most funders -are the downfall of more good projects than any other cause. We can also show you how to evaluate your project in a way that enables it to reach peak effectiveness.

Each of these workshops is accompanied by a compelling PowerPoint presentation and by handouts that enable participants to grasp key concepts.

Our fee for training is $1,500 for the first day and $1,200 for each additional day, plus actual travel expenses. We do not charge for travel time, and will go to the ends of the Earth to work with you.

If you are not extremely rushed, we will provide grantwriting services at a 50% discount from our normal rates. We can do this because our peak domestic grantwriting is concentrated in a few months each year, generally from February to June. Work contracted during our busy months will be deferred until we have the ability to make your job our priority. Usually, the deferment will be for three months or less, and the longest you will ever be asked to wait is six months.

Our typical fees are $10,000 to $12,000 for large U.S. government grants and $3,000 to $5,000 for grants submitted to major foundations. With the deferred work option, your fees would be half of those amounts, yet you are assured of the same high level of performance.
