Experience informs everything we do at Grants Plus, from how we craft proposals to how we recommend you approach funders. Whether your organization needs funding for general operating, a capital campaign or a special program or project, our team can assist you in planning and writing grant proposals for foundations and corporations. Each funder has different requirements and interests. We can help you prepare and submit the right proposal to the right funder.
With success in securing grants from the U.S. Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services and Commerce, among others, Grants Plus can help guide you through the maze of government funding. Our team has obtained grant funding from all levels of government including local, state and federal agencies for projects such as workforce development and employment training programs, early childhood programs, fatherhood programs and more.
Case statements affect all elements of fundraising and help position your organization. It is important to have your fundraising case in order to be able to articulate why funders should support your organization. Elements from this document can be pulled into proposals, appeal letters and individual solicitations. The Grants Plus team will work with you to make sure your case statement is something your organization can use in a variety of ways in conjunction with your fundraising plan.
Whether temporary or permanent, effective grants management needs constant care and feeding. Nonprofit organizations often are short-staffed or don’t have the expertise necessary for a robust grants program. This is where the Grants Plus team can step in. We can manage your grants office for a limited or extended period of time, depending on your organization’s needs. Our team has experience maintaining a grants office on a permanent basis or just until a new person is hired. With a wide range of development and grant experience, our team can be a long-term or short-term strategic extension of your team. Read about how Grants Plus has managed organizations’ grants offices.
Asking for money can be daunting for anyone involved in a nonprofit organization. With over 40 years of combined experience, the Grants Plus team can work with your staff, board or development committee to demystify grant seeking or raising money from individuals. We can help take your staff or board to the next level of fund development, while educating them about what fundraising is and isn’t.
Your first step in securing a grant is prospect research. What grants will work for your organization? What type of funder will be interested in your project? These are questions our team can help answer. Oftentimes organizations don’t have the time to put together long-range plans for fundraising. The Grants Plus team will meet with you to learn about your organization’s plans and needs, develop a list of program areas and activities, research what funders would be best to approach for support, and help you plan your approaches.
Don’t see your need on this list? No problem! There are other areas of fundraising where the Grants Plus team might be able to assist you. We also have a large network of consultants, with a wide range of expertise, with whom we have worked.
