Our team will help you prioritize top prospects, implement a plan to cultivate them, and write the materials you need to ask them for funding.
There are thousands of potential funders out there. We conduct in-depth research to identify and prioritize the prospects that are worth pursuing.
The most successful funding proposals are those invited by the funder. We create and implement a thoughtful plan to cultivate relationships with current and potential funders.
You could spend all of your time explaining your mission, programs and impact to potential funders. We learn to write in your voice, developing email outreach notes, letters of intent, grant proposals and other fundraising materials so you can spend time doing other things.
Smarter Good can help you gain back valuable time by doing many of the organizational tasks that can distract you from achieving your mission and increasing impact.
Smaller nonprofits rarely have the luxury of a finance team. We can step in with a full range of affordably priced accounting services including bookkeeping, managing restricted funding, preparing budgets, and audit prep.
Do you want to profile key media contacts who cover your social issue area? Are you thinking about expanding to a new location but need to learn about potential funding and strategic partnership opportunities? Is your quarterly newsletter in need of client and partner interviews? We have done all this and more!
You could probably spend your entire day scheduling meetings, preparing invitations to upcoming events, or planning and writing your newsletter. We can give you back precious time by supporting your board, human resources, communications and marketing efforts.
