What we do
The process of applying for grants seems daunting, intimidating, and frightening. If you’ve been at it for a while, it can feel like a necessary CHORE. We offer a fresh look at fund development and help you embrace the process. The passion for your work should show in your grantwriting. Storytelling is a powerful artform and can be used to share and engage people in the passion you have for your organization’s important work. I help you tell that story.
I provide quality grant writing, consultation and research services. I use databases that list thousands of grant opportunities. I write competitive proposals to put you in the running for the funding you need.
Not every nonprofit is ready for grant writing. I can help you develop and put systems in place to streamline processes and set you up for success in your future grant writing endeavors.
Once systems are in place, we’ll write your compelling story, bring together your mission and vision statement, budget, create a needs statement and proposal narrative. All will be ready to cut and paste into grant applications.
Generating New Ideas. Solving Big Problems
You probably tell your story every day when you’re asked questions about what you do. What does your nonprofit do? What is its mission? Who does your nonprofit benefit? What is the biggest problem you’re faced with right now? How much money does it take to run your nonprofit? What do you hope to accomplish in the next year? Five years? You may be comfortable verbally discussing your organization’s purpose, who you serve, goals, and visions but it’s not as easy writing it down. I’ll get your story written down or help you do it yourself. Your proposals will not only be more fun to write but also more enjoyable for the funder to read from the opening sentence to the closing paragraph.

Why 2200 Grantwriting Services is different
I want to set you up for success. Certainly, I am able to come in and do the necessary tasks to write successful proposals. But, I also want to help you put systems in place so that your organization is prepared for future opportunities without having to start all over again. My services include fine-tuning Mission and Vision Statements, establishing Goals & Objectives, a discovery process to identify strategic partnerships, board development to build and nurture important relationships, determining your desired outcome, evaluating and reporting your project or program results, and how to protect your relationship with grantmakers for future funding.
I love a good story and I love to share stories. My career successes have been most rewarding when I’m identifying and developing meaningful and productive partnerships. Your story deserves to be told and your visions to come alive.
I become your partner and ally. I understand that the heart of developing proposals are communicating clearly definable and measurable activities and outcomes for your funders. Ultimately, they want to know that they are supporting some activity that will have an IMPACT. They need to understand what your “WHY & IT” are and how you’ll know and how they’ll know that your IT is creating a greater benefit to the community you serve and they want to support.
