Our organization has been working with Sunflower for several years now, and they have been instrumental in helping us grow our foundation to fund downtown improvement projects outside of our annual budget.

Not only did Katie research the grants but she did the necessary leg work to make sure the grants we were applying for fit our organization. Katie is incredibly good at answering questions and her response time to emails and phone calls are remarkable.

Katie was instrumental in finding and gaining for me a state government grant. She gave me frequent updates as she waded through the complicated and cumbersome government bureaucracy.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much can I expect to earn from a singular grant?

The amount of a grant award can really vary. Grants range from $5K to $500K and sometimes more. Foundation grants are generally under $100K, with the average amount has been closer to $20,000. Government grants have the potential for higher funding, but are also much more competitive and much more complex.

What am I getting for my financial investment in grant writing?

First, you are getting a high return on your investment — for example, if you pay $1,000 to have a grant written and receive a $50,000 grant, that is a pretty great deal! And whether or not you receive the grant, you will have high quality content that you can repurpose in a number of ways, such as on your website and social media, or for future grants.

How long does it take to get a grant?

If you have to start with a letter of inquiry or application to apply, to determine eligibility, it adds a little time to the process. Some foundations have rolling deadlines, some meet monthly, and some only meet once a year. And always remember, it’s a competition. There are a lot of people vying for the same funds you are, so you should always put your best product forward.
