Our process starts with gathering information about your organization and the proposal guidelines. Using the application requirements, we develop a clear plan to align your project with the funding opportunity. We also identify other funding opportunities that can help you reach your goals.
We are skilled at facilitating group conversations and we know how to build consensus across diverse stakeholder groups. To develop a comprehensive proposal plan, we meet with team contacts, facilitate team meetings, and support discussions with the funder. The outcome: a compelling narrative and a detailed outline that includes project activities, budget, and timelines.
Working closely with you, we draft the application, validating the argument with secondary research, open data sources, and relevant internal data. Any gaps between the proposal and funding requirements are identified and addressed with thorough follow-up research and client input. The application is further refined with your input and prepared for submission. To ensure your application can stand up to close reviewer scrutiny, we thoroughly copyedit and proofread all documents for clarity and impact. After we confirm approval with project leads, we look after the final step: application submission.
We make it easy to identify partners and gather letters of support for your project. We prepare templates, reach out to partners, and consolidate supporting documentation for submission.
