Funding Strategy Roadmap

Comprehensive research + expert fundraising strategy for the next 12-18 months

You’ve got an idea. A world-changing, million-dollar idea.

But not enough money to make it happen.

“I’m tired of running more and more events. My existing donors are tapped out. I know there’s funding out there that I’m missing out on! Help me figure out my opportunities and cash in on them.”

Think you’ve reached your revenue ceiling?

You haven’t. We can help you dream bigger. And fund programs you never thought possible.

We’ve helped dozens of organizations like yours win 5, 6, and 7-figure gifts, sustain or increase that funding year after year, and create programs that help thousands of people.

And we can help you.

“Helped us achieve beyond what we thought possible”

I began my role as Director of Development totally clueless about everything grant-related. Batya’s patient teaching, belief in me, and incredible expertise gave me a mentor and friend who shaped the way I think and strategize for success. Our organization received several first-time grants in just a year and a half. And those grants can be won repeatedly — year after year! Her impeccable service, contagious confidence and positivity, and belief in our mission helped us achieve things beyond what we ever thought possible! Working with her is a true gift.

“A wealth of information… gave us the encouragement to apply”

Our organization was struggling to find all relevant grant opportunities — and often, we found them too close to the deadline to apply. The knowledgeable FundSource26 team gave us a wealth of information in the form of extremely organized documentation that breaks down various funding sources, details on how to apply for each, and an explanation of what made the grant a good fit for our organization. This gave us the encouragement to apply to funding sources we otherwise wouldn’t have.

The efficiency and expertise of the FundSource26 team made the entire process a pleasure — we’d definitely come back for more.

Is my organization a good fit for this?

We work with a diverse range of non-profit organizations, including food banks, after school programs, addiction centers, special needs organizations, schools, faith-based institutions, and more.

While we would love to help everyone, we only work with organizations that have:

  • Legal charity status in the USA or Canada for at least 3 years 
  • Operating budget of 250k +
  • Paid full-time staff
  • The basic understanding that this is not a “get rich quick scheme” and the drive to invest the time it takes  (typically a year or more) to build a successful funding strategy and implement it
  • An incredible dream they want to make happen

Do you check those boxes?
Schedule your call today.

(If you’re not ready to take BIG gifts and use them, we shouldn’t be working together — yet.)

My nonprofit is pretty new. Can we apply for grants?

Welcome to the non-profit world! We’re glad you’re here. We need more people like you in the world! 🙂

Before applying for grants, you need to get crystal clear on:

  • Your mission
  • Your strategic objectives
  • Your financial goals
  • Your target beneficiaries
  • Your programs

But even with all that, most funders look for a long track record of success before even considering your application and can ask for 2-3 years of financial records as a requirement for submission. You’ll likely be competing with long-established non-profits for very limited grant money.
Your success is our success — so if we don’t think that you are grant-ready we simply won’t take you on as a client.

Want to know if you’re grant-ready?
Take the quiz and find out!

Can you guarantee we will be awarded a specific grant or donation?

No. And don’t let any other grant writer or consultant make this promise to you.

​That said, we have a thorough process in place to make sure we only apply for grants with the highest chances of success. We use research, communication with the funder, and 15+ years of winning grants to determine which funding strategy is right for YOU.

If we believe an application won’t be successful, we won’t touch it.

Once an application is submitted, there are outside factors that make or break the deal.

Working with a team of experienced fundraising experts who understand the nuances of the system will improve your chances of success.

What makes you different from a grant writer?

Grant writers may be talented writers, but to win 5, 6, and 7-figure gifts, you need MORE than writing skills.

Grant writers look at a small piece of the puzzle — we take a holistic approach.

Grant winners (that’s us ;)) use decades of experience, hard-won industry connections, deep strategy, exhaustive research, out-of-the-box thinking, and long-term relationship-building. So you get funding year after year that grows exponentially. Not a one-and-done.

Want grant WINNERS on your team?
Schedule your discovery call here.

Are you really experts in EVERYTHING fundraising?

Well.
We have 15+ years of experience in fundraising, worked with dozens of NPOs, have successfully raised over $30 million dollars, and landed 632 grants.

So if you’re a non-profit operating in Canada or the United States, we’ve got you covered. Our thorough discovery and research process has been tried and tested and proven to work — a million dollars over.

But, it’s still possible you’ll show up with something we haven’t seen before. (Fundraising for giraffes in the Arctic? That’d be new for us.)

When you book your discovery call, you’ll be asked for some basic background. If your NPO falls outside the areas of our expertise, we’ll try to recommend a better fit.

Book your discovery call here. Who knows? You may be the first to stump us. 🙂

We have a grant we’re interested in. Can you write it for us?

The short answer: No.

The long answer:

We don’t do one-and-done grant writing because we don’t feel that it’s a financially advantageous investment for you or us. Funding is won by consistent, ongoing work and building long-term relationships with funders. This takes time and effort and is only done well with a long-term approach.

You can find many grant writers out there. But the model and solution we offer is completely different.

When you partner with us, we become ambassadors for your organization and toil for funding as though we were a member of your team. The way that we do so is by taking a long-term approach — looking after all your funding requests for 12 months.

What that means practically: we build relationships with funders on your behalf. And if anything new comes up along the way (which happens often) we take care of it at no additional cost.

We stand behind our work. So we guarantee we will at least pay for our service.

If you do not receive at least the cost of the Done-For-You Implementation package annual fee in financial commitments, we will continue to work for free identifying grants and submitting applications until you make back your investment.

We usually 10x an organization’s investment — or more. That’s why we’re 100% confident in our services and offer you this guarantee.

What do YOU need to take your organization to the next level?

We’ll discover that for you. And map out the steps.
