(25 customer reviews)

$950.00

Save tedious research time so you can get back to fulfilling your mission. Get well-suited grant prospects delivered straight to your inbox, complete with a calendar of due dates. Never worry about missing a deadline again.

In a perfect world, we would have a little time every day to work on donor relations, writing grants, and researching new funding opportunities. But the truth is, we are almost always dealing with the unplanned and unpredictable events that come up in the nonprofit world. We rarely get our to-do list completely checked off. Grant research is the most time-consuming part of the whole grant writing process. Too often it’s pushed aside, making your funds tight and your stress levels high. Our Grant Research Package will save you an immense amount of time finding grants that are a good fit for you...and will give you the satisfaction of crossing another thing off your long list of to-dos.

What’s included in the Grant Research Package?

  • 8-12 well-matched prospects for your current needs
  • A PDF of each prospect with our detailed notes
  • A 1-hour phone call to review the results
  • Custom questions to ask each particular prospect when you talk to them
  • NEW: A Grant Timeline Calendar based on the results we found - due dates, contact information, and application links all in one master document.
  • Delivered within 2-3 weeks of Research Questionnaire submission

How do we determine if a grant prospect is a good fit for you?

Our Grant Research questionnaire gives us all the answers we need (no phone call required!). Equipped with the detailed information you’ll hand over, we look for:

  • Giving amounts
  • Who they funded in the past
  • If they are a new prospect for your organization
  • Service area
  • Geographic focus
  • And more

Is this package a good fit for you?

This is a great fit for larger organizations who are feeling stuck in their research process, smaller organizations who are already wearing too many hats, or development departments who don’t have the time to prioritize the time-consuming research process. *To get started, you must fill out the Research Questionnaire, and then we'll take the next steps from there. Keep in mind, this service will expire 12 months from date of purchase. Please return your Research Questionnaire promptly! Note: If you need research for a capital campaign, please schedule a call with Funding For Good prior to submitting your research questionnaire here.

  1. J. Knight

    Funding For Good’s Grant Research Package was an awesome opportunity to get contacts and information about local grants that match our needs. I received all information that I needed in a matter of days that was followed up with a conference call to review all information and to have all my questions answered!

  2. Beverly Mihelich – Western North Carolina Society of Artisans, Inc.

    The services Funding For Good provides have been invaluable to our organization. They were efficient, precise, friendly and extremely helpful during the entire process.

  3. L. Roddick-Brown – Asheville Farmstead School

    I worked with Funding for Good and they were highly knowledgeable not only about the specific grants that had been selected for my school but also the many ways we could approach foundations and organizations about their grants/giving. In a short time frame they were able to provide many and diverse opportunities for my school and were able to articulate them clearly and answer all the questions I had.

  4. Tracy Hall – Executive Director of the Catawba Science Center

    Funding for Good (FFG) is an amazing organization providing professional grant research information. We filled out a short survey highlighting projects, exhibits, and programs with funding needs. FFG staff provided a quick turnaround and met with us virtually to review their grant research. WOW! We were highly impressed with the quality and organization of the Grant Research Package. It came complete with specific grants that aligned with our needs. The package was easy to read with due dates, contacts (phone and email), websites, and comments with directions and suggestions. The information had hyperlinks embedded to access the grants and any information that we might need. In addition, PDFs for each grant were included. The Grant Research Package and their presentation was extremely thorough. Not only was the information valuable, but we learned many strategies that will give us greater success when going through the grant writing process. FFG even provided recommendations specific to individual grantors that could only be gained through personal experience. I highly recommend working with the Funding For Good team. I believe that we made a small investment that will more than payoff with the grant opportunities and expertise that FFG provided. I look forward to working with them again in the future.

  5. Sophia Kassa

    Our nonprofit found great value in investing in the FFG grant research package. Working with FFG saved us an incredible amount of time. Completing the research questionnaire was an excellent tool to communicate our funding needs. The staff’s level of understanding of our needs was also impressive. The level of attention given to the research package was apparent through the detailed notes on the PDFs, the grant timeline, as well as the advice on how to approach each funder. Although promised 8-12 prospects, we were pleased to receive 14.

  6. Tonya Fowler

    This was a great investment for our organization! We received more than the expected number of grants, faster than expected, and the time spent with me to review the research was thorough and very helpful. I have a detailed plan to work with and feel prepared for the application process. Worth every penny!

  7. Agape House of Prescott

    Agape House of Prescott highly recommends, 5 star, the Grant Research Package of FUNDING FOR GOOD! This has saved our nonprofit organization TREMENDOUS TIME & MONEY, while still at the same time increasing available grant monies available in our local area. Prior to Funding For Good Grant Research Package, I had spent 12-20 hours a month researching grant information. They performed quadruple the amount of work creating quadruple the grant opportunities for half the wage of payroll already allocated. LOVE & APPRECIATION! Phenomenal & Knock my Socks off!

  8. J. Llewellyn

    The research presentation was excellent! Very professional and well organized!

  9. Tad

    I appreciated the depth of information provided, and especially appreciated seeing some local grant providers that I didn’t even know about despite being located right in my backyard. The team at FFG were quick on the turnaround, friendly, and knowledgeable.

  10. Anastasia “Stas” Taylor, LCSW-S

    Funding For Good’s Grant Research Package was well worth the cost. The research was comprehensive, relevant, and beyond anything our new Development Team had been able to find as part of their own research. In addition, we were given valuable insights and resources to make our approach more effective when requesting funds. Grateful for the clear communication, turnaround time, and results from the FFG team so we can be confident in our journey forward!

  11. Duane – Treasurer

    We were pleasantly surprised in the follow-up to the initial potential grants available. The follow-up discussion gave us a lot of info and direction as to which foundations we should pursue.

  12. Krista Alderson, Director of Development & Operations

    FFG’s research package saved me innumerable hours of precious time and delivered many promising prospects. The research was provided in a very timely manner. In addition to the research information, the context provided and recommendations on how to approach funders, as well as strategic organizational advice was extremely helpful.

  13. S. Mandeville

    FFG provided a great product for a great price – qualified leads that will be super helpful for a team stretched for time.

  14. Juli Hendren

    I highly recommend Funding for Good. The staff are really thoughtful and detailed and the communication and turnaround was great. They went the extra mile after our initial grant meeting, when they discovered another avenue and sent a follow up. The care they have for their work is very apparent.

  15. Carly Oosten – Director of Partnerships + Community Engagement

    We were blown away by the value offered by the Funding For Good Grant Research Package. The level of detail and reporting we received back in just a short couple of weeks would have taken our team months to complete on our own. We were so impressed with the grant prospects and coaching we received, which were relevant to our organization and tailored to our needs. The Funding For Good team was highly knowledgeable and not only provided us with quality research results, but also strategies for reaching out to and engaging with prospects. Before working with Funding For Good, the idea of grant research seemed daunting with our limited financial and human resources. Now, we can’t wait to take our next steps and are excited about the financial future of our organization. Funding For Good made it simple and easy, and it was definitely worth the investment.

  16. M. Theis

    The amount of time you would spend researching this information on your own is worth the price alone. Between that and the amount of information you receive, I would definitely recommend this package to others!

  17. E. Heintz

    The grant research package was very helpful in providing us with initial direction and all of the information we need to start building relationships and getting funding for our programs. It is so nice to have a list of foundations aligned with our goals. Funding For Good was quick and the results were very comprehensive.

  18. Debbie Modzelewski – Court Sports for Life Foundation

    As newbie grant-writers, although not new volunteer fundraisers, our capital campaign committee was thrilled to have the Funding for Good team’s experience to draw on.

    Our conference call to go over the list was extremely useful, especially hearing the team’s thinking on why they included (or didn’t include) grant prospects as well as the recommendations on how and when to approach each grantmaker. The turnaround time was just as they promised.

    All in all, a great experience, great results, and money well spent!

  19. L Sawyers – The Shepherd’s House

    Our organization appreciated the efforts of FFG’s Grant Research Package. We are a small organization that seeks a variety of funding options. The time it takes to search through websites and determine if an agency funds program, general operating, or capital campaigns, plus trying to determine the appropriate person to make a connection with is EXHAUSTING – even before the writing process begins! The grant research package is beneficial as it takes a lot of the “I wonder if they will fund XYZ” out of the equation and allows agencies to give their energy to applying to funders that have a direct historical alignment with mission or strategy. We are happy to have FFG as a partner in our development work!

  20. Nathan Peck – CEO, Cure VCP Disease, Inc.

    We are new to researching and applying for grants and we decided to try this package as a way to get a running start in learning the grant research process versus starting from scratch. The process took about three weeks and the Funding For Good team did an excellent job communicating timelines and expectations. The initial survey was easy to complete and we had a call to clarify some of our responses. Funding For Good exceeded the number of grant recommendations in the package as they found some geographically relevant, small family foundation grants that they wanted to share, but not count against our total. We were appreciative of this gesture. We liked that Funding for Good marked each grant PDF with notes and specific details and things to note for each grant application process. This was very nice and will help us when we start applying and networking with each organization.

  21. D Norman, Chief Change Officer

    The team at Funding For Good intuitively understood our target markets for grants and provided appropriate and timely information on possible grants.

  22. Mara Burdick, VP

    Excellent turn around time & detail of information provided. Friendly, prompt, knowledgeable and organized. We are excited about further investigating the prospects.

  23. Cindy Sergot, Development Coordinator

    The FFG Grant Research Package is a terrific offering and worth the investment. I am new to the field of grant writing with no prior foundation experience. I’m supporting an established organization that has not had a full time designated grant program in place and has utilized many different writers. As you can imagine, I’ve been absorbing a lot of information in a very short few months. I have listened to many FFG webinars and find their teaching style content rich and easy to understand. This gave me the confidence that the research package would be valuable and it did not disappoint! Our organization received twice the amount of qualified grant opportunities than promised with very detailed and clear information. Once the FFG team received my homework assignment they quickly responded with any questions and scheduled our follow up call to review their results. The team went through each prospect thoroughly and made sure I understood how to utilize the information on each organization. As a new grant writer/researcher I really appreciate the detail and effort given to help me navigate each granter opportunity for potential funding. I also received a follow up call on a couple of questions I had emailed to Mandy Pearce. The personal follow up and attention to detail from the entire team is terrific.

  24. Wendy S.

    I am very pleased with the research package that I received. The information was delivered in a clear, professional way, with the documents being extremely helpful. Particularly helpful information is highlighted on each document, which I really appreciate. This package saved me hours and hours of time, and gives me a focused direction to go in. Grant research can be overwhelming, particularly to a small organization that doesn’t have a staff member dedicated solely to fund development. This feels like such a boost!! I can’t wait to get started with this research. Communication with the team and turnaround time were great.

  25. Mack Bailey, Founder and Executive Director, Music Therapy of the Rockies

    As a very small nonprofit with big dreams, the Grant Research Package from Funding For Good was a godsend. The FFG team listened to my needs and goals and the list of targeted grant opportunities was more than I could have asked for. The professional coaching during the review of materials was also invaluable with hints of approaches under certain situations that definitely provided a confidence that I have already experienced. The information is concise and up to date. It helped me even writing the different aspects of the grants. Thank you!!

    July 24 Update: I wanted to thank you again for my research package. While all of them aren’t going to be home runs, my first grant request was approved for $9,600. Definitely makes the Grant Research Package a good investment. – Mack

Grant Research Package FAQs - Click Here

What makes a grant prospect “well-matched”?

Aligning your needs with what prospects want to support makes a prospect well-matched. We use a variety of factors to identify these prospects from geographic focus, financial range of giving, history of giving, subject areas (education, medical, housing, etc.) and grant type (gen. ops, capital, equipment, program, etc.)

What is the turnaround time to receive my final grant research results in-hand?

Depending on current workload, our typical turnaround time to complete a research project for a client is 2-3 weeks. During our initial contact after reviewing the research questionnaire, our team will share our estimated completion date. After the review is complete we will schedule a one-on-one session with the client to review each prospect in detail.

Does Funding for Good guarantee their 8-12 “well-match” prospects will award my nonprofit a grant if I apply?

“Well-matched” prospects are based on available foundation/donor information, history of past giving, current website information and how those known factors (geography, subject are, funding strategy, priorities, etc.) align with the nonprofit organization’s mission and needs. Even if all that lines up perfectly, the donor makes the final decision on who is and is not awarded a grant. While funding cannot be guaranteed, you will receive the highest quality research to identify well-matched prospects for your individual/current needs.

How will I receive information on each prospect in my research results?

Results are sent in individual PDFs for each foundation with detailed information, notes, contact information, important dates and comments regarding each foundation’s guidelines and grant process. You will also receive an editable word document that will house all information for each prospect in a single resource that you can update, share with your team, and use as a quick reference guide to create your timeline and keep notes. Each of these items will be emailed to you prior to our review call.

If I am conducting a capital campaign, why do I need to reach out to Funding For Good before booking research?

Capital Campaigns are larger dollar items than most typical programs and projects. When a capital campaign is in the millions of dollars, it is most beneficial to have 2-rounds of grant research to find the most ideal prospects as possible. We discuss this, creating a timeline for capital projects, discuss the pros and cons of finding a comprehensive list of potential foundation donors at the onset and how leveraging dollars as you go can increase odds of success.
