Service Description

I provide clients with a complete RFP response that includes what the client perceives as the most pertinent information for a potential funder to select their program for an award. For example, clients will need to provide information on what the funds will be supporting (direct service programming, operating funds,etc.) and why those services are so vital to the population that their agency serves. From this information, I will generate a well-written and solid RFP response that meets the requirements of the potential funding institution.

I will send a draft of all narrative and statistical sections to the agency for their review prior to sending a complete and corrected final proposal directly to the agency. I welcome and encourage frequent communication between the client and myself during the writing process to ensure that I produce quality results.
