Grant Writing

Hiring an experienced grant writer is one of the most financially astute decisions a nonprofit can make. By outsourcing the labor-intensive process of writing the grant and putting it into the hands of a professional, you free up your staff to focus on its core competencies, ensure that your request for funding is professional and as good as it can possibly be, and save by spending a relatively small sum on a potentially exponential payoff.

Hiring a professional grant writer makes sense even for start-up nonprofits with little money, both because writing grants is one of the least expensive ways to raise initial funding and because a professional grant writer will ensure that your entree into the foundation world is marked not by mediocrity or disarray but by a clear sense of purpose, strategy and conviction.
