We work with cities, counties, public, private and charter schools, school districts, non-profit organizations, and foundations that have a specific tax exemption status. We do not work outside of the US, nor with individuals or businesses legally structured for profit.
We work with private and public grants. We do not work with corporate grants, endowments, or provide fundraising event services. We do focus on funding for construction projects and capital campaigns. Such grant proposals can range from $40,000 to $4,000,000 each. Some of the large agencies we’ve worked with in the past are FEMA, CDBG, and more.
Yes. It is similar to an accountant who charges regardless of your tax situation or a lawyer that charges regardless of how a case unfolds. We are frequently approached by groups with incredible project ideas that request our services be paid contingent upon award. Unfortunately, we do not commit to such agreements.
The overall grant funding process depends on your unique project but generally, the larger the grant, the longer it will take to win. Timelines can range from one month to two years (or longer). Timelines and their variables are defined, as much as possible, in the grant research services we offer.
Probably anything. However, we focus on grants that fund construction of buildings and the furniture, fixtures, and equipment to fill them. In general, grants can pay for anything except debt and lobbying. We can provide a better estimate of what elements of your concept could be grant funded in a complimentary consultation.
No. We do not need to meet in person. With so many ways to communicate and share files, we save your project the expense of travel. In the event that an in-person meeting is necessary for application services or award management, we will know far in advance.
Understand that all grants are designed to allow the applicant to work with the agency or grant maker directly; a consultant is not required in order to apply. However, an experienced consultant will know the ins and outs enabling swift and correct navigation to your award. Some funding programs are first-come-first-serve, so having a complete and correct application to submit at the first opportunity can allow yours to move past other applications.
We are a small business and it works best for us to start with a phone or video call to meet for thorough Q & A. From there, both phone calls and email correspondence are welcome.
We start all of our clients with a preliminary consultation and grant readiness assessment. Your first step is simply to contact us, and we will take over from there! Find out more here.
