What's Included:


Grant Proposal Portfolios 

Securing funding is more than submitting a simple proposal—it’s about telling your story in a way that resonates with funders. That’s why I develop custom Portfolios for nonprofit grant-seekers. These (grant) portfolios are designed to position your nonprofit for funding by enhancing your organization’s appeal using a well-written grant proposal and several key documents that you’ll need to stand out in the competitive world of grant applications.


  1. A Comprehensive Guide and Instructions for use.
  2. Complete Grant Proposal that covers everything from the Abstract to the Sustainability Plan.
  3. Grant Application Essential Templates: You’ll receive a Letter of Inquiry, and templates to request Sponsorships, Donations, Volunteers, Partners, and Endorsements. There’s also a Thank You letter and a Statement of Contributions template.
  4. Grant Application Essential Documents: You’ll receive a properly formatted Official Board List, Non-Discrimination Policy, and detailed Budgets – all prepared to enhance your application’s credibility.
  5. A Common Grant Application: This is a 10 to 15 page document containing frequently asked questions on grant applications, along with tailored responses based on your program and proposal.
  6. Customized Grant Listings: A curated list of 10 funding opportunities specifically matched to your organization’s mission and needs.
  7. A Grant Calendar to keep your applications on schedule.
  8. Expert Guidance: Three personalized consultations with an experienced grant writer—me, to prepare your proposal, and help you strategize your approach to applying for grants.
