Grant Proposal Critiques

Grant Proposal Critique Review

Make your good proposal even better.

Laura's objective proposal review will give you a fresh perspective.

Her words of advice will help you take your grant writing to a new level.


Does your proposal read well for your target audience?

Laura is a former program officer. That means she knows what funders are looking for when they read proposals. She also knows what they don't want to see. And that can make the difference between a proposal that's funded or not funded.

When Laura reviews your grant proposal, she's looking for several things:

  • typos, spelling, grammar, punctuation
  • general readability
  • overall clarity, consistency, tone and flow
  • jargon or concepts that may not be familiar outside your organization
  • adherence to the funder's formatting recommendations or requirements

Your proposal critique will include the following:

  • a summary of your proposal's strengths and weaknesses
  • suggestions for improvement
  • recommendations for revisions
  • helpful hints that will help you make every proposal you write better

Yes, I want Laura to critique my next grant proposal!


What nonprofits say...

Laura helped us with our organizational voice, message, and delivery. She provided insight and rationale on specific grant edits and gave our team wonderful coaching and writing tools.

We appreciate Laura's expert advice and suggestions on grant proposals that we have submitted. Laura has been invaluable and such an asset to offer guidance on questions we may have with proposals.

Laura provided very detailed, constructive help and support that was timely and within the schedule she committed to. Her guidance not only helped create a polished application, but we learned techniques and tips so that our next application will go much smoother, so it was an excellent learning experience. We will definitely work with Laura again in the future.

Laura has been great about providing outstanding editing helping us submit top-notch grants to foundations and corporations. She is super quick on editing turnaround which has been so helpful, especially when we have faced some tight deadlines. Laura is an educated and talented resource for our organization.
