“Stacie is one of our most successful writers in working with a range of our clients in the higher education and health care spaces. She is especially good at leading multi-party collaborations and is our first pick for certain clients that are newest to federal grants or need a lot of hand-holding and firm direction.”
Sometimes you need an external perspective to work through an internal impasse or bring additional expertise beyond your staff’s capabilities. It’s amazing how new ideas emerge and partnerships naturally flourish from fresh, objective advice from an experienced professional. With a deep understanding of market trends, we ask the right questions and engage the most appropriate stakeholders to strengthen your grantseeking efforts. We also provide objective reviews of applications before submission.
We regularly provide consultation to healthcare organizations new to grantseeking in the federal and large foundation arena or with limited prior success. We consult with hospitals and healthcare systems, academic institutions, and community-based agencies on an ongoing basis (for retainer clients) and as-needed for others. Bottom line, it’s mutually beneficial to ensure organizational readiness before engaging in grant writing.
For example, we’re constantly on the pulse of new grant opportunities as they arise, reviewing and interpreting funding solicitations behind the scenes for retainer clients. As noted by one happy customer, “We’ve gained expertise we couldn’t otherwise afford in the federal grants arena. Her technical expertise is so good and such an advantage to our group.” – Bente Weitekamp, Vice President of Development, Community Health Network
