How could a grant management consultant help my organization?
The grants lifecycle is complicated, and given the competition for funding, the process is often daunting to many nonprofits and government agencies. Some ways a grant professional could assist include:
- Where to start with the grant seeking and grant writing process
- What is the best means to obtain funding
- How the organization can ensure it has capacity to manage grants
RBW Strategy offers a comprehensive overview of the grants lifecycle, and how best to move forward given your organization’s current position.
For many organizations, simply finding grants or funding opportunities is a challenge.
Using a proven approach for success, we can help by performing detailed research to determine potential foundation, government and/or corporate funding prospects. We will ask you to complete an information gathering form to customize and tailor our research; and we’ll work with you to review of funding sources based on specified guidelines, and develop outreach calendar for obtaining funding.
A grant writer can give you an edge by bringing focus to your organization’s strengths while ensuring that you create a complete and effective proposal.
At RBW Strategy we support you through every step on the grant writing process. Our services include:
- Preparing detailed proposals

We’ll review your proposal and create a detailed report on the strengths and weaknesses in your application. We’ll also review the specific grant guidelines and conduct compliance checks for both content and formatting requirements to ensure adherence.
