Grant Writing

pencil pusherWe are a team of professional, successful grant writers. Our decades of  grant writing experience raises your chance of being awarded funds. We have written hundreds of successful grants across a variety of disciplines. Our proposals are of such high quality that our clients have been awarded a total of $157,000,000 in grant funding. We write grants for public agencies, corporations, and non-profit organizations.We do not write grants for individuals.

We work with our clients in a deliberate, thoughtful and collaborative grant writing process. We charge $10,000 per grant for grants with budgets of $100,000 or higher. This fee is payable in two payments, 50% due upon signing of contract and 50% due upon submission of the proposal. Please call for a quote on grants with a million dollars plus budget.

We charge on a sliding scale for grants that are less than $100,000 total budget. The fees are based on the size of the annual budget and the annual budget of the organization.

How much will you pay for us to write your grant of under $100,000?

Follow these steps:

1. In the table below, look in the left column to locate the row that contains your organization's budget range.

2.  Look in the second row of the table to locate the column that contains the range that your grant will fall between.

3. The cell that intersects down that column with your organization's budget on the left is the fee charged for the grant.

The sliding scale only applies to grants from $10,000 to $99,000. Grants of $100,000 or higher will be charged at the same rate for all organizations regardless of annual budget.

Our review and critique includes:

  1. Proofreading
  2. Compliance with the Request for Proposal
