Yes, I want to talk to Laura about our grant writing needs!

We write grants for a select group of nonprofits.

Our clients are education, youth development, health, and human services organizations.

We believe in relationships, and that's why we write grants for small group of clients.

This lets us get to know our clients, their programs, and the grant funders they approach.

We rarely take a writing assignment for a single grant proposal.

Information for prospective new clients:

Before we take on a new grant writing client, we consider several factors including:

  • The nonprofit's age and reputation, its track record, and its history of success
  • The strength of the program/project needing grant funding, including feasibility and whether it meets a clear community need
  • The organization's annual budget and the diversity of current funding sources
  • The program/project budget and the sustainability plan
  • The ability of the nonprofit to manage the grant award and deliver stated outcomes

Grant makers are looking for these things, too. That's why your nonprofit needs to be "grant ready" before you apply for grants.

What nonprofits say...

Laura has done an excellent job of guiding our group on some of the intricacies and subtleties of fundraising -- especially in the area of grants. We feel we have a very good guide in an area we were truly 'newbies' in.

Working with Laura streamlined the incredibly complex process of grant writing. She got to know our organization and projects and translated that knowledge into a clear set of steps for us to move forward and grow.

During a time when nonprofits need competent and reasonable expert grantwriters, we found the best in Laura.

All I can say is, 'WOW!' You've got this grant writing thing down.

Penelope Burk literally wrote the book on "Donor Centered Fundraising" in 2003. So, the idea of donor-centricity isn't new. What's donor-centricity, you ask? It's organizing everything you do around the wants and needs of your donor. And in nonprofit communications, there's nothing more important than making the message about your donor. Here are some examples of how a lot of nonprofits talk to their donors...and how you should be talking to your donors. (read more)
