Grants for your Business or Charity

VCI’s staff of Non-Profit Developers can provide research of Federal, State, Local, Foundation or Corporate Grant Opportunities for your Nonprofit Organization, For Profit Business or Local Government Entity such as a City or County Department.  Once the basic research has been performed, a long-range funding strategy can be developed for your organization to maximize available grant opportunities. 

Once the grant opportunities have been identified, the next step is for the client to provide information about their organization such as EIN, DUNS, mission, philosophy, values, history, goals and objectives, programs, staffing, organization budget and program budget(s) for current year and upcoming year.   NPD  begins preparing the application or proposal sections such as the Executive Summary, Statement of Need, Project Description and Budget.  Drafts are provided to the client for review and additional input may be requested.  Finally, NPD prepares the final document ready for mailing or electronic submission.

No grant award can be guaranteed; in fact, most grants are highly competitive and only the most detailed and complete applications win awards.

NPD charges for its grant writing services on an hourly fee or a project fee.  It is unethical for a Certified Grant Writer to accept fees that are contingent upon a grant award, or that are based on a percentage of a grant award.  You will find that NPD provides professional services by experienced and successful Certified Grant Writers® who will give your application a strong competitive narrative.  We will gladly speak with you personally to discuss how our services may benefit your business.
