New Nonprofit Plan
New Nonprofits (with no grant award history) receive the annual program which includes the following assistance:
- Grant Readiness
- Nonprofit Management
- Financial Accountability
This program includes 24 grants researched, written and submitted on their behalf for a retainer fee of $2,500
Experienced Nonprofit Plan
If the client is an experienced Nonprofit with a history of grant awards, they have the option of the 24 grant annual contract, which includes the research, writing and submission for a retainer fee of $2,000.
**All plans also include the payment upon funding additional fees, which are capped at $2,500 for grants over $25,000. Anything below that amount is charged at 10% and only when the grant funds are received.

To be grant ready, a nonprofit must have the following in place:
- 501 (c) (3) organization – Almost every grant maker requires nonprofits to be a 501 (c) (3). This means your organization is tax exempt and donors may deduct donations to the organization. An umbrella organization can be used to cover the non-profit status until yours is approved.
- Mission Statement – A mission statement is the light to guide the path of a nonprofit. You should not change your mission statement in order to apply for a grant. Use your mission statement to decide which grants to apply for.
- Strong Board – All 501 (c) (3) nonprofits are required to have a governing board. The more involved the board is, the better off the nonprofit will be.
- Strategic Plan – This is a plan should be developed by the Board and the Executive Director to map out the next years of the nonprofit and the steps needed to reach the goals of the plan.
- Fundraising Plan – Grants should only be part of your financial plan. Grant makers want to see a diverse fundraising plan. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.
- Program Details – A grant maker will not fund a project that is not well thought out.
- Financial Statements – Grant makers want to see budgets and financial statements. Having a yearly audit is also a big plus.
