Our Services

We specialize in long-term organizational grant capacity development for nonprofits/NGOs.

Organizational Capacity

  • Grant Application Pre-Submission Review and Feedback. $600. Applying for federal grants is a highly competitive process. Let us review your proposal, and provide actionable feedback, before you submit it. We will need a complete version of your application/proposal and the funder’s Request for Application (RFA)/Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). We require at least 72 hours before the grant’s deadline to complete our review. Click here to get started.

  • Federal Grant Management Systems Assessment. $4,500. Federal grants can be overwhelming for new and developing nonprofits. Before you take the plunge, let us review your business and operations systems to see if your organization is ready to manage federal awards. Our engagement includes a deep examination of your nonprofit’s governance; organizational capacity; policies, systems and controls; and external environment through a series of one-on-one interviews with your organization’s leadership and staff. The final product is a strategy deck with our findings, recommendations and action plan. Click here to get started.

  • On-Call Support and Coaching. $5,000 per year. Sometimes, all you need is a person you can call for a quick question, a brainstorming session, an outsider’s opinion or just an ear to bend. We’re here for you. All topics welcome. Everything is fair game: brainstorming new projects and positioning them for potential funding; grant management technical assistance; budgeting advice; policies, procedures and systems assistance; program sustainability and much more. The annual fee assumes assumes a one-hour call per week over 50 weeks (we close the last two weeks of December). A $1,000 retainer is required to begin. Upon receipt, we will send you our consulting agreement for signature–and we’ll get to work. Click here to get started.
