TFC grant research and grant writing complements the fiscal sponsorship program. These services are for anyone who wants to apply for a grant, whether your project is part of fiscal sponsorship program or not. TFC may be able to assist you with your grant application even if a fiscal sponsor is not required.
TFC will work with you on a case-by-case basis to define your needs. Grant writing and/or research services are provided by the hour and availability depends on current workload.

The grant I am applying for does not require a fiscal sponsor. Can you still help me write the grant?
What does a grant writer do?
A grant writer takes the basic information you provide about your project and tailors it to specific grant opportunities. Once we have your project information we tune the language appropriately for the targeted funder. Broken into steps, TFC will:
- Analyze the intended audience for the proposal
- Gather information from you about the subject of the proposal
- Write the proposal
- Format the proposal
- Revise, edit, and proof read the proposal
- Submit the proposal
What do you need to know about my project in order to start writing a grant?
We need you to provide, in writing, as much of the following as possible: project description, synopsis and/or treatment, intended audience, distribution strategy, marketing strategy, current status, completion plan, key personnel, budget. If you don’t have all of this yet, that’s ok, we can work with you to create it. Once we have this basic information about your project we can start tailoring it to the grant opportunity you are interested in applying for.
I don’t have any of the materials listed above. How do I get started?
Review our fiscal sponsorship proposal guidelines here, for a description of each, this will help get you started.
