Cali Z. Hayes is an experienced grant writer in Portland who works with nonprofits throughout the U.S.
Over the last eight years, I have developed grant proposals for some fabulous nonprofits, both on staff and as a consultant. All told, those proposals have raised more than $30 million.
I know sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day to develop winning proposals while simultaneously cultivating new donors, overseeing programs, conducting evaluations, coordinating events, maintaining relationships, working with volunteers, and getting a decent night’s sleep.
Whether you need funding for a well-established program or you need to turn a concept into a fully-fledged pitch, I am here to help. I have years of experience developing successful proposals for federal, state, and local government agencies, as well as corporations and private foundations.
Do you need help getting your grants program off the ground? I'll help you create a plan, find prospective funders, and develop your first proposals. Then I’ll step back and let you take the reins (while remaining available to offer guidance as needed).
Prospect research is a critical, but often time-consuming, part of building your grants pipeline. You and I will discuss your organization’s needs, goals, and current funding and I will build a list of potential funders, complete with full profiles identifying key information and potential strategies.
Services are billed either at an hourly rate or for a flat fee based on the length and complexity of the project. Your investment will vary depending on your organization’s specific needs. I encourage you to get in touch with me to determine the rate for your project!
As a general guide, costs tend to land in the following ranges:
