Working With Kathi

leaves-blueGrants are a practical way to raise funds but the writing process and the coordination of supporting documents is time consuming and requires meticulous attention to detail.

Staff members often wear several hats, juggling competing deadlines and diverse management functions. By engaging Kathi, your staff will be able to focus on their operational responsibilities, while Kathi focuses on your proposal.

Accuracy Counts

Kathi provides the framework needed for precise, comprehensive and successful proposal writing.

While Kathi cannot guarantee funding, she guarantees a concisely written proposal.

She coordinates the entire grant writing process with your team, managing all of the details including the project’s timeline, logistics, and submission.

Working Together — what to expect

  • Introductions – Kathi will meet with the Development Director and/or the Executive Director to learn about your organization, its fundraising history and needs. This meeting can take place in your office, by conference call or by Skype.
  • Evaluation – After the initial meeting, Kathi will review your programs and funding needs and evaluate if she can be of assistance.
  • Engagement – If you decide to work with Kathi, you will be asked to sign an Engagement Letter. The Engagement Letter specifies the timeline, project deadlines and the total cost of the project. A signed Engagement Letter and a retainer of 50% of the total contract are required to begin working with you.
