We specialize in private foundation and corporate funder research for grant development.

Strategies include:

  • Discuss the goals and activities of your organization, previous grant history if applicable, and your funding needs.

  • Identify potential corporate, private, family, regional and national funders from our own database, subscription services and other sources.

  • Provide a spreadsheet of potential funders, including due date(s), contact information, geography, funder interest, potential program match, average awards plus any additional relevant information.
