WHY HIRE a PROFESSIONAL GRANT WRITER?
There is no such thing as “mastering” the grant process, the rules and players constantly change. To ensure you greater success and locate as many opportunities possible; maximizing your odds, you have a better chance by working with a professional familiar with the industry. There are no guarantees, but a Consultant can increase your funding opportunities and the likelihood of receiving funding. A professional Grant Consultant will get to know you, your Mission/Vision and your project by offering personalized one-on-one attention and guidance throughout the entire research, writing and submittal process.
We specialize in FOUR components of grant writing:
Grants are not a means of getting something for nothing. Rather, they are professional collaborations between an Organization whose Mission for serving complements a Funder/Donor's passion. As such, it is important to present requests in terms of your Organization's overall goals in order to demonstrate their compatibility with those of a potential Funder. Program Development is the process by which your Organization's request is developed into a fundable program that can be proposed to multiple, and most important appropriate Funders. We can help.
Possibly more significant than a well-written grant is its submission to an appropriate Funder. Our professionals conduct research for upcoming grants and funding opportunities that match your Mission and for which your Organization meets the criteria to apply. Funders have goals, initiatives and dreams just like the non-profit Organizations they fund. No matter how well-written your grant, it has very little potential of being funded if its programmatic or geographic focus, or the amount of the request, are outside the interests of the potential Funder. Thorough research of potential funders improves a grant's success rate significantly, avoiding unnecessary efforts and expenses. Our researchers are ready to help.
Grant writing is a unique animal. Like any field with its own professional jargon, you need to know how to speak the language in order to participate successfully. This includes everything from the standard sections of the grant itself to the nature of the relationship between the Funder and you the Organization. Keeping abreast of funding trends within the philanthropic community and the government as well as participation in professional Organizations facilitates this process. However, one of the best ways to write grants well, is to write grants often, learning from successes and failures. This sort of experience paves the way for successful grant writing.
Grant Administration refers collectively to full administrative activities from proposal inception to grant project completion. Beyond Visions Group does it all.
All funders require a follow-up process. Reporting results and doing that in a timely manner can turn into a complicated reporting procedure for a busy Organization. Here at BVG we also are able to provide this service.
