Corporate & Foundation Solicitation

Understanding the culture, history of giving, and requirements that each corporation and foundation has established is key to securing grant funding. Focusing on quality vs. quantity of requests builds the strongest relationships first. Adherence to the funder’s requirements and sharing the decision-makers, i.e. board members, with our client’s network, can be extremely beneficial in positioning the request for support.
