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

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

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
