Grant Writing and Research

We write grants and research funding opportunities so you can focus on what matters most.
Our Services

One grant a year or ten grants a week, we’ve got you covered .

There’s a reason you’re applying for a grant: something needs to be fixed; a wrong needs to be righted. You have a story to tell and success depends on your ability to communicate. You just don’t have the time. Or the experience. Or both. We fill in your resource gaps and write compelling grants quickly.

How we can support you

Grant Writing

We write compelling letters of intent and grant applications. Let us write the entire request, including budgets, or let us work on certain sections, like improving your narrative.

U

Grants Research

Finding potential funders and reviewing requests for proposals takes time. Lots of time. We’ll do the grunt work and find warm leads that are just right for your organization.

l

Report Writing

Need reports for a grant you’ve received or one we’ve written together? Give us a shout. Got a report due on short notice? No problem! We’ll bend over backward to get it done in time.

Draft Review

You’ve written the grant but you’re not sure it’s good enough. Or you just need a second set of eyes to cross the T’s and dot the I’s. We’ll use our editorial expertise to polish your proposal.

OUR PROCESS

Our process varies depending on the services requested. Often, client relationships begin with a free consultation call to determine grant readiness and discuss goals and needs. Then, we match you with a grant writer who has the skills and experience that best align with your organization.

IF WE DO WORK TOGETHER TO WRITE A GRANT, HERE’S OUR PROCESS:

ASSESS

We first look over your existing grant materials as well as the application you’re planning to submit. From this, we determine a price estimate for the project.

RESEARCH

Once the contract with price estimate is signed, we work to fill any gaps in the existing grant materials with additional research. This might include collecting data on the client population, the intervention, and more.

WRITE

Working closely with your team or a designated point of contact, we write the grant application to fit the funder’s requirements.

REVIEW

Again working closely with your team or a designated point of contact, we review and finalize the grant, making sure its information is accurate and current.

SUBMIT

We can help with the submission process, though often we encourage clients to submit grants themselves so that they are the final point in the chain of submission.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

How big are the awards Williams Grant Writing gets for clients?

We respect client confidentiality, so while we can’t tell you who, we can tell you how much. We’ve prepared grants as small as a few thousand dollars and as much as one million dollars. On average, our clients receive grants between $20K and $300K.

Do you have time for my organization?

Grant writing has a lot of “hurry up and wait” baked into the process. Inevitable wait times for revisions and draft approvals give us the flexibility to work with new clients.

I want to write proposals for my organization on a monthly basis instead of just one project. Can you help with that?

Yes! WGW is happy to provide writing services either project-by-project (check out the À La Carte package) or as part of a full grant subscription (explore the Partnership Plan for turnkey grant research, writing, and reporting).

I’ve heard I should connect and develop a relationship with potential funders. Can you do that for me?

We do not offer relationship-building services, but absolutely encourage all our clients to make the effort to do this on their own. The simple reason is that if you ever stop working with us, you’ll lose the connection. And we’re committed to doing what makes the most sense for you. These connections drastically increase your chances of getting funded. When we take on the research, writing, and/or reporting, your executive director will have much more time to focus on this.

We have a grant writer on staff that sometimes needs help with grant proposals. Can you help us with this?

Absolutely! We’re happy to help with the load wherever we are needed in the process. We’ll finish projects that you’ve already started, vet funding opportunities your organization has already identified, create applications for new programs, and more.

What are funding foundations looking for when they award grants?

Grant funders look for the same things that a venture capitalist looks for in a good startup: history, infrastructure, sustainability, sound financials, uniqueness of program or project, and good people. That’s why we only guarantee compelling grant proposals and not the funding itself (unless you choose The Full Monty package). It’s not just the grant that matters, but your organization as a whole. Our job is to help you tell your story powerfully.

Do you have time for my organization?

Grant writing has a lot of “hurry up and wait” baked into the process. Inevitable wait times for revisions and draft approvals give us the flexibility to work with new clients.

How long does it take to write a grant?

Private grants take a minimum of three weeks once the writing begins. Government grants can take at least four weeks. If you need something faster, ask us about rush rates! We’ll work nights and weekends to meet your deadline if that’s what you need.

Can you identify grant opportunities for my organization?

We provide this service on an ongoing basis as part of our Full Monty Partnership Plan. We’ll monitor daily RFPs (a.k.a. funding announcements) and research current funding opportunities that might be applicable to your organization and/or program.
