Frequently Asked Questions


I'm happy to answer any of your questions.  Here are a few common ones.

 1  How much does it cost?

There are fees associated with grant searching, grant drafting, and grant reporting. To get a specific quote for your project or organization, please write me an email and ask for an estimate and scope of work. I'll send you information related to the types of work you are seeking. Work is completed on a contractor agreement basis with signature required on contract prior to work beginning.




 2  Can my organization do some of the work on our own?

123 Grant Writer LLC can do the entire grant arena from grant searching, to award acceptance, to grant reporting if you wish. However, if you just need assistance with just one piece of this, we can provide a quote for just one item of service. For example, your organization might already have a list of grants you would like to apply for. In that case, you may not need a grant search and can skip to the step of asking for a quote for a written proposal.




 3  Is my organization / project grant worthy?

In an initial consultation with you, which is provided free of charge, I will help you determine if your project might qualify for a grant. There are sometimes issues that must be resolved before a funding application can be made. For example, if your nonprofit organization cannot show proof that you are current with your annual reporting requirements and in good status, I cannot help you until you resolve that issue.


Also, particular projects may not be grant worthy. For example, some funders will not cover ongoing maintenance costs and prefer to cover new programs and new ideas. Also, many funders will not award grants if they far exceed your normal annual budget. I can let you know my opinion on your ideas, free of charge.




 4  What do I need to provide to you?

All nonprofit organizations or tax-exempt organizations must have all of your grant supportive documents in order. These include items such as Form 990 tax reporting, a current audit statement, a 501c3 letter from the IRS or other proof of tax exemption, annual budgets (current and past), and possibly other documents. Without these documents to copy and send with your grant, most potential funders will not accept your application for consideration. If you need help gathering or creating these, 123 Grant Writer LLC can assist you for a small additional fee.


We will need a short few-sentence synopsis of your project idea, including the target audience, the approximate budget, the planned outcome for the community you serve, and similar information.





 5  What do I do if I have more questions?

Simply send me an email, and I will respond to you within 48 hours.
