Do you have any specialties?
We write grants for foundations and government funders, and sometimes for corporate foundations. RIC also provides board development, organizational development, strategic planning, and program development consulting. We specialize in areas related to health and human services, criminal justice, and youth services. RIC’s clients and experience is pretty diverse, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you want to talk further about your organization and your needs.
Along with grant writing, we also work with Nonprofit Board of Directors and Government agencies to facilitate their Strategic Planning process.
How do you typically work?
We usually start with an initial meeting and site visit so we can see your program, meet staff, and collect all the documents we need to get started.
It is very important to have regular communication throughout the contract period. In general, we recommend having regular calls or meetings (we like weekly calls and monthly or quarterly meetings).
We are generally very flexible to accommodate clients’ needs, preferences, and capacity. Please contact us to talk more about your organization’s needs.
Who do we work with?
- Awesome! Starting a nonprofit is lots of hard work. Fortunately, there are many free resources available through some fantastic organizations whose mission is to help create and sustain effective nonprofits. For several resources in one place, go to the Community Foundation of Greater Atlanta’s website and scroll down to “Learn More.”
I’m starting a nonprofit. Can you help?
- We generally recommend that nonprofits wait until you have an audit and at least two years of operating experience and measurable outcomes before applying for a grant. Applying for and managing grant funds requires capacity and established infrastructure, so it’s usually an intermediate step in a nonprofit’s growth.
