National Campaign's Goals Clearly Defined and Resources Secured
C+G has worked with a national campaign for over three years to develop grant proposals for short- and long-term grants from leading educational, energy and environmental philanthropies. Preparing a comprehensive proposal required a hands-on, collaborative approach with the client, research and knowledge of public policy and current events and issues, and an ability to tell a compelling story to potential donors.
The proposals provide a background of the campaign, strategies and tactics, metrics, organizational structure, timeline and a budget. C+G's work with the client resulted in grants from multiple philanthropies, exceeding $17 million annually. C+G also prepares annual reports for individual donors, in addition to biweekly reports. These detail the campaign's activities and successes and have been instrumental in keeping donors informed and engaged, resulting in many of them providing grants year after year.
