Good Works’ Team Approach
Teamwork is an integral part of our process. When you partner with us on an ongoing basis, you’re hiring a team of grant professionals who are dedicated to helping your organization find the right prospective funders and who are dedicated to crafting a compelling narrative for your proposals. Below is a list of each team member who is focused on your account when you work with us on retainer.
The Good Works Grant Writing Team Roster:
A seasoned grant writer serves as your main point of contact at Good Works Grant Writing. Account managers are responsible for maintaining your grants calendar, meeting with you to discuss prospects and proposals, and managing the Good Works proposal process. The account manager writes the first draft of many proposals, submits online proposals on your behalf, and prepares mail and email submissions for you.
The grant specialist is responsible for ensuring all aspects of your proposal are in motion and up to date. The duties of a grant specialist include, downloading the questions for grant proposals, conducting research for your program areas, maintaining program files, and often writing initial proposal drafts. The grant specialist is a crucial teammate who gets the “next” proposal started even as your current proposal is being finalized for submission.
Your proposals’ first reader is Good Works Grant Writing’s copy editor. Our copy editor is a veteran development professional and former executive director of a community foundation. Our copy editor’s experience reviewing grant applications sharpens your draft proposal before it is submitted to you for review.
Finding the right prospects is just as important as writing compelling copy. Good Works Grant Writing has dedicated prospect researchers.
