Grant Review & Mentoring

Grant Review Detroit.png

Our Grant Review and Mentoring service offers nonprofit organizations, creatives, consultants, and other grant writers the opportunity to receive critique and feedback on grant applications at any stage in their development. Led by Robin Myrick, who has worked in nonprofit development for many years and has raised over $14 million as a grant writer, we will review individual grants before submission or work with you across multiple proposals, providing guidance as you continue developing grant narratives that capture the work you do. We review all types of proposals, including those to federal, state, county and city agencies, corporate giving programs, private foundations, arts funding initiatives, even grants for individual writers and artists.

When you submit a grant to us for review (including the application guidelines), you have a number of options for how we'll work together. We can meet with you online or by phone to discuss the proposal. We can provide you with a written report detailing the proposal’s strengths and issues, including any red flags we see that could potentially disqualify it for funding or raise concerns. We can also suggest revisions and improvements as needed, and look at whether the grant meets the funder’s stated giving priorities, complies with all application instructions, and offers clear and compelling arguments concerning the need vs. funding requested. We can even review your budget, budget narrative, and other financial components of the grant if desired, to ensure that these elements of your proposal also support your argument for funding. 

In other words, choose your own adventure. Select the type of feedback you'd like to receive, how it's delivered, and the level of advice you want as part of the process. We offer Introductory Coaching Sessions, Grant Review Services, and One-To-One Mentoring Services. Our aim is to meet your grant writing goals.

Sliding-scale pricing is available to eligible 501(c)(3) nonprofits, and determined by annual budget among other factors. Contact us to learn more.
