Grant Writing (Over 500 Million Acquired) 

The Ramsay Group, services are designed with one objective in mind: provide quality and aggressive grant writing services at an affordable cost. For nearly two decades, TRG has had the opportunity to provide a significant number of charitable, private and public agencies with grant acquisition services, resulting in millions of dollars in critical funding. 


Our grant acquisition services are turnkey...lessening the burden normally associated with grant research and development. Below is our grant acquisition process:


Fund Development Planning: The first step in our relationship is a fund development plan. This phase is completely analytical were interviews with leadership, review of current program and services, and (if warranted) the creation of new programs and services are done. Based on this information, we prepare a draft report outlining fund development objectives for current and new programs; fund development opportunities; the sufficiency of the present staff and systems to realize those opportunities and a clearly defined timeline with attainable goals.

Grant Specific Research: TRG will provide extensive analysis and research necessary to ensure that grants meet the definition of suitability and sustainability. This includes: 


  • Identification of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and challenges to implementing and administering specific grants. 
  • Identifying potential partnerships (public/private partnerships, or non-profits) to leverage resources and grant funding.
  • Minimize impact on staff resources during grant research process by working independently as much as possible, yet thoroughly. 


Grant Writing and Submission: The Ramsay Group will draft and submit complete grant applications to appropriate agencies on behalf of our clients. The firm will make sure that final grant applications are submitted for consideration in a format consistent with rules and regulations outlined in procedural guidelines. TRG will also provide grant “advocacy”. During pre and post-submission, routine communication to targeted funding sources will be made, prompting the importance of funding your programs. This includes:


  • Thorough understanding and adherence to timelines and conditions necessary for a grant application. 
  • Writing of grant application with staff review and approval before forwarding to awarding agency. 
  • Monitoring and follow-through of applications during the review process.

TRG will assist in reviewing current program grants and create strategies to obtain sustainable funding beyond the program period.


Relationship Building:  Building relationships for collaboration is critical as nonprofit funding has become scarce. How to maximize the use of program funding is critical to your success. We help you to leverage relationships by developing skills in facilitation, appreciative inquiry, dialogue, planning, and decision making to help you build successful relationships with potential partner agencies as well as civic and neighborhood groups.
