Complete Grant Proposal Support

With reduced levels of government funding for social and health care programs, there’s tremendous competition among organizations for available grant money. If your organization is looking to fund a community-based initiative, we can identify grant opportunities, liaise with potential funders, help with the grant application process and produce a sharp, successful proposal. Not only have we supported many organizations with developing grant applications, we’ve liaised with funders to interpret their guidelines and procedures and have prepared ongoing progress reports for many clients.
