Grant Writing Program

Grants help organizations expand their current scope of work, bring promising new ideas to life, and bring needed resources and support to communities to produce sustainable best practices.

Whether your organization is a small nonprofit, or large hospital foundation, the Steadman Group has the experience and expertise to bring your grant ideas to fruition and produce winning applications for you and organization.

Our Approach

Grant writing can be a daunting process, even for the most accomplished and experienced of organizations. Much like putting together a difficult puzzle, our grant writing team will break down the process into manageable chunks and provide the project management needed to produce a competitive grant. At the Steadman Group, we realize that our clients are the experts in their fields and communities. We are here to support your vision and help make it a reality. Our grant writing team takes the time to listen to our clients and their ideas, and then crafts these into successful and innovative grant proposals. 

We are well-versed in every stage of the grant writing process from identifying a potential grant, to curating required attachments, writing narratives and needs assessments, to final edits before submission. No matter where in this process your organization is, we are here to help and work with you through the process. Grant writing is a collaborative process and we will guide you through the specifics of letters of support, work plan development, budget creation, and more to ensure no detail is overlooked.

The grant writing process

Get to know the client
We take pride in our client relationships. Before any real writing occurs, we take the time to listen to your vision, goals, and challenges.
1
Dive in to the details
Successful grant writing requires exceptional attention to detail. Our team scours your RFP with a fine toothed comb. We leave no detail behind so that you never have to worry about missing an attachment or overdoing the page limit again.
2
Let the writing begin
By leveraging the various strengths of our team, we divide and conquer. Using technology to work together simultaneously on one living document, you can watch (and participate) as your winning proposal comes to life!
3
Pause, reflect, and edit accordingly
As we work through the application, things evolve, new ideas come to fruition, new data is shared, budgets adapt etc. We meet with you continuously throughout the process to tweak, fine tune, and perfect your final deliverable.
4
Grand finale
We're all familiar with Murphy's law, that everything that can go wrong, will. If you've ever tried to submit a grant at the last minute you likely know this to be true. Our work does not end when the deliverable is complete. We work with you throughout the submission process to ensure smooth sailing to the very end.

Our subject matter expertise will help your organization identify emerging best practices, tailor region specific innovation, and collaborate with other organizations in your area to produce a unique and community centered grant.

What people say

Lesley and Shelley were really fabulous. They listened carefully, asked very good questions and the end product very much hit hit the mark.
I just read through the narrative and am so delighted with it. Such a good job in pulling this all together into a succinct document.
The RPAN narrative is so well organized, and I am grateful for the time and work you put into this! It has been such a great opportunity to work with you, and am excited for the chance to work with you for our next grant application. Thank you for your patience as we worked through the challenges. I cannot thank you enough - you are the best of the best!
Other CEOs had mentioned to me how challenging it is to hire a firm to provide grant writing support -- that you need to grow the talent from within. This was not at all our experience. You guys were terrific!
