Our tailored grants management, advisory and mentoring programs are customised to meet your needs.
Grants Program Monthly Management
Outsource management of your grant-seeking program
We can provide month-to-month grants program management. This is helpful for nonprofits new to grant-seeking to embed best-practice, to temporarily fill vacant positions, or to provide training to your team. For some organisations, it can be more cost-effective to outsource. We can provide advice on what we recommend is the best solution for your unique needs.
Monthly grants program management includes:
- Assistance in managing your subscription to GEM Portal
- Monthly meetings to plan for upcoming applications
- Project matching to upcoming deadlines
- Completion plans for applications and funder reports
- Advice on reporting and donor relationship management
- Monitoring grants program performance
Project Planning and Budgeting
Project plans and budgets are a common point of weakness on grant applications. Often the project plan provided to the grant writer by the project leader, lacks evidence of both the need and the benefits the work will bring.
Strategic Grants works with nonprofits to provide a customised project information template that can be used with your project leaders. This ensures the project is on strategy, it is grant-ready and there is enough data and evidence to build a strong, competitive application.
Training is also provided in budgeting. This ensures total project delivery costs are accounted for, plus organisational contributions, co-funding, and true costs to deliver.
Major Donor Stewardship for Grants Success
Grant funders are major donors to your nonprofit. Appropriate relationship management and engagement is key to success! We will work with your team to ensure that relationships are managed in the best possible way, through strong reporting and engagement. The aim is for your organisation to be the one that gets the phone call asking if you need more funding.
Grants Training and Mentoring
Strategic Grants believes strongly in increasing your nonprofit’s capacity to survive and thrive.
Training and mentoring services provide your team with best practice training, based on our work with funders and their feedback. We deliver training with and for funders, we co-present with them and attend their events. We catch up with them regularly and know what they are looking for in a partner.
