The increasing global competition for shrinking financial resources, coupled with the rising donor demand for results-based programming, presents challenges especially for smaller organizations looking to build capacity. We can help you develop stronger narratives, assessment methodologies, and well-researched information and data to support your grant requests. With experience developing concepts and applications for U.S. and private foundation grants and contracts both large and small, we offer technical assistance whether you are applying for new funding or renewal, including:

  • Develop a concept paper and test it internally and externally
  • Conduct research and desk reviews to synthesize the most recent and relevant data, best practices, geographic areas, and activities related to a proposal
  • Conduct community and stakeholder outreach and assessment to test proposed programming, including interviews and focus groups
  • Draft grant proposals, work plans and budgets to support activities
  • Develop monitoring and evaluation tools and M&E plans
  • Conduct interim and final program assessments and write donor interim and final reports
  • Provide interim and COP leadership and management services
