Haystack Essentials is a boutique grant consulting firm committed to helping your nonprofit find and secure grants.
We will meet with your organization to discover the challenges and opportunities it faces. Then, we will take the information you provide and develop it into a working narrative and budget for grant planning for the future.
With our combined experience in the classroom and marketplace, we offer a unique approach to help your organization prepare for grant applications.
Before we can provide grant writing services, we need to know which grants to apply for. We have developed a unique approach to grant research and strategy that eliminates the mystery of how to successfully develop a project or program.
Through this process, we will produce a Funding Strategy that lays out how to get from today to your long-term vision.
We can help you from start to finish with private foundations, state, and/or federal grant applications.
Some grants are complex 100+ hour effort projects and others require a "Letter of Inquiry" before finding out if we are invited to submit a full proposal. We will help you with the heavy lifting, no matter the size and complexity.
Due to the wide range of scope and schedule, we offer tailored pricing (ranging from $500 - $20,000 per project) for your organization, contact us for a quote.
