The WSC grants practice provides full-service consulting services customized for the nation’s most innovative nonprofit organizations. We specialize in raising funds through federal and state grant programs, private and community foundations, and corporate grants and gifts.

WSC excels in providing hands-on management for both time-sensitive, highly technical projects and the development of self-sustaining fundraising programs within organizations.

We serve as a full-service grants department for many of our clients. For others we establish internal mechanisms that facilitate a team approach to seeking federal grant opportunities. WSC also conducts educational sessions for many clients, often presenting before the board of directors.

WSC’s success is driven by proprietary strategies that address the continuum of tasks required to negotiate the competitive grants process, including in-depth research to maximize lead-time, analysis of statutes and regulations, organization and tracking of all relevant materials, management of registrations, compilation of your credibility file, and conducting extensive edits and revisions to your proposal throughout its complex development.

Our grants experts have secured funding for many organizations, including hospitals, social service organizations, institutions of higher education, and local governments. Read our success stories.
