Grant Writing Services

Grant Writing Services are offered to organizations that perform a public benefit or charitable activity and that are exempt from taxation under the IRS code. This may include "non-profit" agencies, churches, schools or government entities. Individuals and for-profit business generally do not qualify for the types of funding available through this service.

Proposal Review/Evaluation

Rates

The client has the option of an hourly or flat rate. An hourly rate will typically result in an overall lower expense, but a flat rate provides certainty of costs. The client may request that hourly charges have a "do not exceed" amount. Note: funding search/research that is not part of a larger project (e.g., program design, proposal writing) is only billed at an hourly rate.

Hourly:
$35 per hour, including travel time outside the Eugene-Springfield area.
Flat:
Flat rates depend on the complexity of the project, existing level of project development, and complexity of funder\'s submission requirements.
