How much does it cost and will you write grants for a percentage of the grant amount?
We cannot write grants on a percentage basis because 1) most funders do not allow grant funds to be used for work undertaken before the grant is awarded and many prohibit the use of grant funds for fundraising purposes. Therefore accepting a portion of a grant as payment is fraudulent, could result in the funder requiring the grant to be re-paid by the organization. 2) It is also not allowed by professional organizations such as the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
We enter into contracts on 3 models:
1. Long term consulting contract
2. One-time grant writing projects contracted 2 months before due date.
3. Emergency grant-writing projects requiring urgent work . (premium rates apply)
We are able to give our clients the best rates by personalizing your contract.
