Five Star Consulting - "Your Education & Grant Writing Solution"
Thanks for visiting!
 
Five Star Consulting is a leader in the field of grant proposal writing, grants management, and organizational development. Over the past twenty five years we have secured over $18,000,000 in grant funding from federal, state and local organizations, city governments, corporations and foundations. We can provide you with tailored and user-friendly coaching and consulting services in the following areas:
 
Grants
 
  • Identifying Grant Opportunities – We can help you plan and implement a research approach that will identify funders who are most likely to fund your organization’s work.
 
  • Planning Programs – We can provide guidance to help you identify community needs, and then plan programs that address them.
 
  • Developing Proposals – We can provide expertise, guidance, and support to help you interpret application guidelines and develop compelling proposals. We’ll guide you, but won’t write the proposal for you.  
 
  • Professional Review & Feedback of Draft Proposals – We will study a draft of your proposal and provide you with written comments and suggestions for how the proposal can be strengthened. If the proposal is written in response to application guidelines, we’ll study those as well so that our suggestions are right on track.
 
  • Coaching for Grant Professionals – We can answer questions, suggest resources, and even meet with you weekly by phone or e-mail to provide professional supervision. We can provide review and feedback on proposals you’ve written and suggest avenues for continued professional development.
 
  • Grants Management – Once you win a grant, it’s critical to manage it well. We can help your organization establish the infrastructure to manage foundation, corporate, or government grants effectively. We can also help you interpret government regulations, establish systems to ensure compliance, and help you correct problems you’ve run into.
 
Other Ways We Can Help
 
  • Organizational capacity building – Our capacity-building expert can guide your organization’s board and executive staff through a self-assessment of the strengths and weaknesses in current management systems and governance. Assessment results can provide the basis for policy and procedure changes, and for funding requests. Our consultant can provide coaching, guidance, and critical review and feedback of proposal drafts aimed at strengthening your organization’s infrastructure. Capacity-building consultation services are limited to approximately three organizations each year.
 
  • In-service training for staff – We can develop and deliver webinars and on-site professional development tailored to the needs of your organization.
 
  • Fund Development strategies – We can help you establish an organizational fund development plan, train staff in proven strategies, and provide feedback and coaching as your organization works to increase revenues beyond grant funding.
 
  • Specialized services – If you don’t see what you need here, give us a call. Five Star Consulting has a broad range of expertise on all topics related to grant proposals and grants management. We are also specialists in non-profit fundraising, organizational development, board development, and more.
