Grantsmanship

Grantsmanship

To be successful, a grant needs to be written by someone who knows the organization well, and thoroughly understands the organization's mission, goals, and those who it serves. When we work with an organization to develop their strategic plan, for example, we research and learn about what makes that organization "tick." With this knowledge, DLN has the information necessary to write a successful grant or funding proposal.


The average funding success rate for a competitive grant is approximately 20%. Grants evaluated by DLN Consulting, on the other hand, have a running success rate of between 40-50%. Our unique grant evaluation techniques simply work, and work well.
