Our Services:

Our services are customized to each client according to their needs and budget. However, the basis for our approach remains the same: we strive to improve the products and strategies an organization utilizes in its grant program, streamline grants management, and maximize stewardship to funders. Prior to working with a client, we define a Scope of Services which guides our efforts and clearly outlines the project’s activities and timeframe.

Grant Program Strategy & Development

  • Assessment of priority funding areas and prospects
  • Creation of grant program strategic plans
  • Development of action calendars
  • Grant administration including development of monitoring processes, reporting requirements, evaluation plans and program budgets

Grant Writing

  • Proposal preparation and grant writing for foundation, state and federal grants
  • Development of proposal and letter-of-inquiry templates.

Grant Prospect Research

  • Identification of potential foundation and corporate funding prospects as well as government grant opportunities
  • Creation of a “Grants Prospect Matrix” specific to an organization’s funding needs, that prioritizes potential prospects and provides comprehensive prospect information and data.

Foundation and Corporate Relations and Stewardship

  • Adaptation of best practice strategies for building and maintaining foundation and corporate relationships
  • Consultation on successful funder outreach and engagement approaches
Our staff works with Scipione Consulting as a team and their assistance and guidance have been invaluable as we grow our fledgling grants program.
