Grant Consulting

Have you had a nonprofit or grant consultant support your organization before?   As a subset of nonprofit consulting, grant consulting separates the nonprofit organizations that win grants from the ones that don't. 

Funders will ask about your capacity.  


They want to know if you have a strategic plan, logic model, evaluation plan, and theory of change. Having a robust strategic plan and other elements in place transforms how the reviewer and, ultimately, the funder understands your organization.


Funders want to know about your governance policies, if you have appropriate financial and accounting systems in place to manage a grant appropriately, and if your Board of Directors has the right skills to take your organization to the next level.  


Confirming these details will communicate to your potential funder that you have the skills, expertise, and capacity to get the job done.  Only an experienced and professional nonprofit consultant can position your nonprofit organization in this way and get high scores in the capacity section of an application.


Having a strong strategy in place transforms how the reviewer reads your proposal and will communicate to your potential funder that you have the skills, expertise, and capacity to get the job done.  

Have you had past consultants give advice but none of it stuck?  Our experienced team in Atlanta, Georgia, and across the country, provides practical and actionable feedback you can deploy today and execute within your current capacity.
