So, you're ready to connect with us? Yay! We can't wait.
So that we can fully understand your needs, we ask you to complete the below brief survey so that we can make sure we are the best fit. Once submitted, you'll hear from the team promptly!
What all does a grant consultant do?
Lots of things! We love to research & prospect, connect non-profits to like-minded funders, write compelling grant narratives, review & edit copy, WIN & manage grant awards, draft press releases to celebrate your wins, and work with you collaboratively to fulfill reporting requirements.
When we aren't writing grants, our team enjoys laughing, drinking too much caffeine, sunshine, and exploring every corner of Oregon.
How do grant consultants get paid?
This is the number one question that we get asked. Like any other service provider (i.e. attorneys, accountants, or coaches) we are paid for our time, effort, and expertise regardless of whether a grant is awarded. Yes, it's true - we can't ever fully 100% guarantee the outcome of a submitted grant application. We do our due diligence to ensure we only approach the funders with whom we have the best chances of success. Your resources are valuable and finite - we take that seriously and aren't in the business to be wasteful or haphazard.
What types of clients does Just Look Left LLC work with?
Well, it's been a journey! Three-years ago, Elaine would have told you that our focus is on arts & culture non-profits. Although a few of our current clients certainly fall into this category, our firm has approached our work with an open, inquisitive, ever-evolving outlook.
Nowadays, if we had to niche ourselves, the majority of our client portfolio is comprised of foster care nonprofits, disability services organizations, and Latine-led & serving entities. Pretty dang cool, huh?
How long does it take to write a grant?
This is the second most popular question that we get asked. Some grants are super streamlined and can less than 10 hours to pull together and submit. While others, especially massive Federal grants, can require well over 150 hours to complete!
For this reason alone, you will see a wide pricing range associated with grant writing services across the industry. It is certainly not a one-size-fits-all approach as every grant opportunity and every funder is unique.
