Foundation Services

FOCUS on Foundations

The FOCUS Group’s Foundation Services provides clients with targeted foundation research, high-quality grant writing, and strategic counsel, conducted by experienced consultants and grant writers without the overhead costs of a researcher or writer on staff. FOCUS on Foundations offers clients excellent and affordable services, so even a small or mid-size nonprofit can compete with large nonprofits in targeting the limited pool of grant funding available in this economy. We maximize fundraising by strategically placing a nonprofit in front of the right people, at the right foundations, at the right time, and with the right message.

Foundation Research

Identifies the best foundation prospects for your mission. Our detailed screening process produces a prioritized list of grant making foundations that fund specific projects and organizations along with the appropriate application strategy to maximize your funding opportunity.

Letter of Inquiry Service

Provides the foundations identified in the research with a first-rate impression of the partnership opportunity you are presenting them. Our professionally tailored letters use proven methods to effectively communicate your mission and vision, and pique the funding interest of each foundation you approach.

Grant Writing Service

Prepares expertly written, personalized grant proposals for your foundation prospects designed to “tell your story” with maximum impact. Our industry insider knowledge coupled with our professional writing will clearly and persuasively communicate why your project is an important partnership opportunity for the foundation to fulfill their mission and funding objectives.
