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.
Grant Proposal Writing Bootcamp - $200 (May 11, 18, and 25)
The Grant Proposal Writing Boot Camp is designed to support a small group of nonprofit leaders who want to learn how to write a proposal with the help of a coach. All proposals are compatible for U.S. community and foundation grants only. The client is responsible for attending three sessions, asking questions and completing homework assignments. Each assignment is the key element to the grant proposal. The client is responsible for writing the proposal and the coach will review and edit all submissions. Also, there will be an open-door policy that will allow the client to have access to the coach for three weeks.
Grant Writing Coaching - $850
Clients will experience three intensive sessions that will help them to learn how to develop a profitable nonprofit program for future grant applications. Clients are responsible for doing homework and turning it in by due dates and the consultant will develop each section with the client. In addition, clients will walk away at the final meeting with a 90-day plan, an initial grant proposal based on their homework and grant funding research tailored to the nonprofit mission statement.

Frequently Asked Questions about Grant Writing
How long does it take to write a grant?
The timeline depends on the complexity of the application, scope of work, etc. Generally, it takes between 4-12 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.
