Grant Services

Ostara’s experienced and adaptable grant consultants have raised more than $30 million over the past decade and supported the work of more than 115 nonprofits with custom-built grant research, strategy, writing, and assessments. We approach grants with:

Intention – Successful grantseeking is more than submitting copy-and-paste proposals. We carefully identify the right prospects for you, tailor our proposals to each funding opportunity, and work with you to position your organization as competitively as possible.

Integration – We take a holistic approach to grantwriting that creates alignment between grant revenue and your strategic operating, program, or campaign goals.

Insights – We ensure leaders can make data-driven decisions about grants, programs, and growth. We go beyond dollars raised and highlight the far-reaching benefits of effective grantseeking.

We can build your organization’s capacity to pursue and secure grant funding through:

  • Grant prospect research
  • Grant readiness assessments
  • Grant calendar and workplan building
  • Letters of intent, proposal, and report writing for private and public grant opportunities
  • Creation of budgets, logic models, program plans, or other documents to support grants
  • Proposal editing
  • Institutional relationship building
  • Coaching on grant strategy
  • Grantwriting and coaching to support campaigns
  • Federal grant proposal writing
  • Sponsorship or corporate giving planning or coaching

Please note: Ostara adheres to the American Grant Writers’ Association’s code of ethical standards, and bills on an hourly basis for grantwriting services, regardless of the outcome of the grant proposal itself.
