Let's Talk Grants
I specialize in teaching nonprofit leaders on how to craft grant proposals for their programs. Also, I offer full-service grant writing for nonprofit professionals who would like for Alana Knows Nonprofits to write the grant proposal on their behalf.
Please note: For grant writing services, this is for nonprofit organizations that are a 501 c 3 tax-exempt that caters to youth development, women and girls, and minority/disadvantaged communities. This service is only for community and foundation grants. No Federal grants.
(These services are for only one program and payment plans are included)

Grant Writing Coaching - $850 and up (Done with You)
This service is ideal for new nonprofit organizations who are in the process of becoming grant-ready and developing a new program. All clients will experience three to four intensive sessions that will help them to learn how to develop a profitable proposal for future grant applications. Clients are responsible for doing homework and turning it in by due dates and the consultant will develop each section of the grant proposal with the client. In addition, clients will walk away at the final meeting with a 90-day plan, a grant proposal, and grant funding research tailored to the nonprofit mission statement.

The consultant does all the heavy lifting and will meet with the client three to four times for clarity, timeline development and editing purposes. This service will include a tailored grant proposal designed by the consultant, a copyeditor for proofing, and a detailed list of funders with upcoming application deadlines.
Grant Management (Monthly Retainer)
This service is ideal for clients who need a grant manager to apply for grant opportunities and build relationships with the funder. Clients for this service are grant-ready and have the necessary documents and resources for applying for grants. This service does not include writing a grant proposal - it is only for the management of grants.
Frequently Asked Questions about Grant Writing
How long does it take to write a grant proposal?
The timeline depends on the complexity of the program, scope of work, etc. Generally, it takes between 3-5 weeks.
Can I pay the grant writer from awarded money/contingency?
No. It is no longer considered an ethical use of funds to pay the grant writer from awarded money, nor is it allowed by funders. It's best practice to agree and pay a fixed rate at the beginning of the project.
Do you guarantee I'll be awarded the grant?
No, funding is never a guarantee. Even if everything aligns with the heavens, the funder makes the final decision on who is and is not awarded a grant.
How long will it take to receive awarded funds?
It can take months to receive awarded funds and depends on the guidelines of the funder.
