Grant Services

Elevate’s signature service is comprehensive grant writing and strategy.

We build grant programs from scratch, revive programs that have been in decline, and give already-successful programs a boost in capacity.

Our Process

Nonprofits across the sector and with varying budgets reach out to Elevate for support: to manage their entire grants program from start to finish, to add capacity to their in-house grants team and increase volume of output, or for expertise and a fresh perspective on strategic vision. We meet our clients where they are and work together to build and maintain a sustainable grants program. Our scope of work includes:

  • Strategy, advice, and oversight
  • ANNUAL PLANNING AND FORECASTING
  • PROSPECT RESEARCH
  • CULTIVATION SUPPORT
  • WRITING: DRAFTING, EDITING, AND SUBMITTING PROPOSALS
  • STEWARDSHIP STRATEGY
  • COMPREHENSIVE GRANT CALENDAR MANAGEMENT
  • SYSTEMS-BUILDING AND PROJECT COORDINATION

Let’s Work Together!

It's a Team Effort

The team approach is a key differentiator of ours – allowing us to bring exceptional and experienced fundraisers who specialize in institutional philanthropy to nonprofits at a more affordable rate.

Each of our clients are assigned a:

Director

an experienced and proven fundraiser, who will set the strategy, review and approve all grants, and oversee all aspects of the grant program

Grant Writer

who will dramatically increase capacity by conducting prospect research, and drafting, and submitting proposals each month

Project Coordinator

responsible for all the administrative details, logistics, and operations—such as managing the grants calendar—required to build a grant program

A Note About Pricing

Our grant services are priced on a monthly retainer model. The monthly fee is largely dependent on two factors—the organization’s annual operating budget and the agreed upon volume or scope of work.

We charge a one-time onboarding fee and our monthly fees are all-inclusive—meaning there are no charges for extra hours, mailing, or any incidentals—all meant to make it easy for annual budgeting.
