First, one of our experts in grantwriting and fundraising will schedule a kickoff call to confirm JVA’s approach and interview you to learn more about your organization and your great work.
Next, we’ll search grant directories, grant guidelines and online resources, as well as professional databases and websites. We’ll look for interest areas of funders, as well as awards made to other organizations with similar missions, programs, budget size and geographic reach. In addition, JVA researches the size of previous grants given and the number of awards made in a set time frame.
Then, we’ll prepare a detailed list of best-fit local and national funders from foundation sources, based upon your organization’s identified goals, priorities and needs. We’ll include a rationale for why we recommend each funder and advice on how to position your organization with those funders. We’ll also provide a proposed 12-month funding calendar, organizing funders by due dates, so you have a detailed plan for grant submission.
Finally, we’ll hop on the phone with you to review what we found, share insights and answer any questions. We know you invested in a product with the intention to understand it and use it to benefit your organization, so we’ll work together to make sure it’s action-ready.
What’s the timeline for the whole process? Work will be completed within six weeks of kickoff.
