Try fundraising, first, before requesting for grants. It may give you faster results.
- Can I apply for loans?

Why do government and private organizations give out monies?
The federal government gives out money to people/entities that can point out the benefits of their proposed program(s) such as generating more jobs and reducing homelessness and poverty in the country.
As jobs increase, more people will pay their taxes and this will enable the government to support infrastructures for the development of states, cities, and counties. Taxes help the government complete its programs such as granting loans and giving assistance and services to the public. Private organizations give financial assistance to individuals and organizations that share the same mission and vision as them. These help them fulfill their mission better and let them utilize their resources further as they carry out their social responsibilities.

What is an effective proposal?
How long will it take you to write the proposal?
The turnaround time depends on the package you purchased. The Starter Package takes about 10 business days to write. The Basic Package, on the other hand, takes 15 business days to finish. Likewise, the Deluxe Package takes about 20 business days and the Premium Package requires 30 business days.
We also accept clients that already have a funder. If you must submit an application with a specific deadline, we can work on it under certain conditions. But we will not accept orders that are due in less than seven (7) business days from the time you have placed your order with us. We decline clients with such a short notice because we do not want to compromise the quality and delivery of our outputs.
Grant writing takes time because aside from rigorous analysis and intensive research, we must also organize and check every grant detail to validate its need and ensure its value to your application.
What can I expect to see in standard and custom-fitted proposals?
|INCLUSIONS||CUSTOM-FITTED PROPOSAL||STANDARD ALLIED GRANT WRITERS PROPOSAL|
|Proposal Narrative||The sections/compositions of a custom-fitted grant proposal will follow the guidelines and submission requirements set by the funding organization chosen by the client. This may not include the sections found in a standard Allied Grant Writers proposal. As such, the proposal’s number of pages will be based on what is required by the prospective funder. Pricing of a custom-fitted proposal will be based on the grant application details and the requirements of the grantor. Depending on the number of pages and on the amount of grant request, the custom-fitted proposal can be priced as Starter, Basic, Deluxe, or Premium package.||
