WRITING

EVERYBODY HAS A GOOD CAUSE, BUT THAT IS NOT ENOUGH TO SECURE FUNDING IN THE FIERCELY COMPETITIVE WORLD OF GRANTS.

 Tikkun Grant Advancement crafts compelling narrative by examining an agency’s strengths and its vital role in the community. We specialize in connecting the dots between an organization’s work and goals, the community it serves, and a funder’s interests. Whether this takes the form of a short proposal for a family foundation or a 30-page application that will be judged by experts in the field, our writers understand how to elevate an agency’s work. We communicate complexity effectively to the layperson and understand the level of detail that creates a compelling narrative for more sophisticated audiences.


Government Proposals

Government agencies are directed through legislation to provide certain services, promote specific goals, and solve particular problems. As such, federal and state proposals are unique projects that require a different lens and process than foundation applications. Tikkun Grant Advancement understands how to weave an agency’s accomplishments and abilities into the strict format typically required in a government application. Our thorough narratives are highly responsive to scoring protocols. We make sure attachments and narrative are appropriately aligned and provide effective project management to ensure all components of the application move forward according to the necessary timeline.


Government grants may bring in substantial dollars but they also come with substantial obligations. Before embarking on a government proposal, Tikkun Grant Advancement ensures an organization understands the long-term implications of a government contract for its work and whether it has the capacity for ongoing grant management, required evaluation, and other compliance.
