Grant Writing: It's Much More Than Writing

Successful grant writing is not a cut-and-paste, one-size-fits-all activity. It is not something you back into or slap on a program. Rather,  it is an important advocacy tool for your organizational mission. Superior grant writing  tells a compelling story of who you are, why you exist, who you serve and why a funder should invest in you.  Moreover, it is strategically integrated into your program offerings and your total resource development plan. 

VisionTree Creative understands the competitive grant review process.  Grant awards we have won for clients have ranged up to 6 figures, depending on organizational capacity and alignment with foundation values.  

To craft the best proposal, we listen, take in lots of information to immerse into your cause, focus and goals. This allows us to get to know you, believe in you and speak the heart of your mission. Further, we reach out to better know foundations and stay current on their changing priorities. Grant writing services may also include prospect research, grant packaging and submission, and general advice on budget presentation.
