** GRANT REPORTING **

 

Just as important as the grant itself, is providing thorough reporting.  Even though you have acquired the grant, your obligation to the funder isn’t over.  Once your organization accepts the funder’s monetary investment, you also accept the responsibility of preparing and submitting grant reports, detailing how the money has been spent, as well as the specific impact your program or project has had.

Reporting requirements differ from funder to funder.  It’s our job to understand these requirements and ensure timely submissions.  Some reporting may be required annually, quarterly or even monthly.  At Shore Grant Services, we’ll prepare well-organized, comprehensive grant reports to meet each individual funder’s requirements.

Funder reporting is critical in persuading funders to continue their monetary investment in your organization.  At Shore Grant Services, we’ll prepare grant reports to meet each individual funder’s needs, to help ensure continued potential funding.

** GRANT WRITING TRAINING **

 

Looking to develop an in-house grant writing expertise?  Shore Grant services will provide customized, comprehensive on-site training on how to write grants.  The fact that our training will be specifically tailored to your needs is what makes our service unique and extremely effective.

We begin by engaging in a free, exploratory telephone-based strategic planning session to identify your knowledge-gap, needs and potential number of trainees.  Then, we create customized class-room materials and conduct a one-day or two-day professional development session for a small or large group, again, based on client needs.

** FEE STRUCTURE **

 

Shore Grant Services understand the unique financial situation of non-profit organizations in Westchester County, NY.  That’s why we offer flexible billing arrangements.  From hourly billing, to monthly retainers, to per-project billing, we’ll devise a payment program that’s just right for you.
