Development Assessment

It's often hard to know where to start raising more money. First, you need a plan.

A comprehensive development assessment will evaluate the following criteria and provide a step-by-step guide for improving your fundraising in prioritized areas:

-Brand and reputation

-Fundraising strategy and positioning

-Communication with foundations and major donors

-Building relationships with funders

-Making a solid ask

-Small dollar & individual giving

-Donor database management

-Fundraising collateral materials, such as pitch documents, reports, social media, and websites

-Grant writing and administration

-Overall financial health

Grant writing

We provide limited grant writing services. With more than a decade of experience, we can help dash that proposal off in a hurry. Our proposals will tell your story in strong, evocative language, and make sure that deliverables are clear and concrete.

Grant writing is charged at an hourly fee scaled to the budget of the organization. We generally recommend grant-writing as part of an overall Development Assessment package.

Our primary experience is with private foundations, civic engagement funders, and state & local government, not the federal government.
