Grant Writing: Grant proposals tailored to your project or general operating needs. My philosophy is that every foundation or corporation is different; therefore, your proposal must take those differences into consideration to be successful. 

Grant Research: I will do extensive research to discover all appropriate grant opportunities for your nonprofit. Your organization must be a “good fit” with the priorities of the prospective funder for you to have a chance of success. 

Written Fundraising Communications:  Annual Fundraising letters, thank you letters, letters of inquiry, stewardship reports, etc. 

Training to help you create a fundraising plan: An investment in training will yield dividends for years to come! Every successful nonprofit organization needs an annual fundraising plan. I will help you construct a plan that will ensure you have the funds to operate your organization for the coming year. Once you have created your plan, you will find it easy to update it for each successive year. 

Written copy for Web and print newsletters & brochures: Fundraising and publicity go hand in hand. Simple newsletters and brochures will raise your profile among your constituents and help you raise more funds.

Why use a consultant?

Why use a Consulting Grant professional?

 

  • Impact  – I’ve helped raise upwards of $500,000 annually for one client. 

  • Cost Efficiency - Nonprofit clients spend less for my off-site, free-lance development work than they would for a full- or part-time employee. The cost of raising $500,000 has been about 4%-5%. Compare that with what a nonprofit would spend for a salaried part-time employee to raise that amount—10%, or for a full-time salaried grant writer – 20%, and you’ll find that it’s a winning business arrangement.

  •  No perks - Clients don't pay any of the perks of a full-time employee, such as health insurance or vacation pay.

  •  No tax admin - Clients don’t need to administer the payment of my taxes.

  •  Space savings and more - Clients don’t need to provide a desk in what are sometimes close quarters, nor do they have to supply a computer, printer, ink, paper and numerous other supplies.

  •  Long term arrangement - This arrangement works well over the long term: I've had several successful long-term relationships with nonprofits. 


Experience

Experience

 Enid D. Horowitz has been engaged in grant writing for nonprofits since 2001. Prior to that she was a music educator in public schools in Philadelphia and New York City. She applies this background daily as a consultant to arts, culture and education organizations.

With the understanding that people give to organizations they are familiar with, Enid uses public relations and communications, including newsletters, brochures, direct mail correspondence and publicity, to raise your nonprofit's profile.

Enid began in the nonprofit world as a program coordinator for the Board of Rabbis of Greater Philadelphia. While there, she managed a small charitable fund, gaining firsthand knowledge of what funders seek in a nonprofit. She wrote the Board's annual grant narrative and went on to a position as grant writer for Singing City Choir, combining her love and knowledge of music with her writing abilities. In the course of five years, she successfully increased Singing City's foundation support.

Enid is a member of the Grant Professionals Association-SEPA, and holds a master's degree in journalism from Temple University. Please see her resume.

FAQs

 

Q- Do you work on site or from your own office?

A- I will do either; however I've found that after an initial meeting, I generally work from my office and communicate with clients by phone and e-mail. This arrangement is most economical for you. I am happy to attend meetings and relevant events to become familiar with your programs. 

Q- How do you get the information you need?

A- I prefer to work with one point person from your organization who will gather all the necessary information for grant proposals, reports, press releases, etc. This saves time and money. 

Q- How do you charge for your services--by the project, by the hour or by some percentage of the grant?

A- I charge an hourly fee that is reasonable and competitive in the field. The Association of Fundraising Professionals considers it unethical to charge a percentage of a grant. You'll understand why when you consider that not every proposal is funded, through no fault of the grant writer. It's a bit like paying the doctor only if 

you get well! Also, many foundations frown upon using their grants to cover fundraising costs.

Q- How much lead time do you need to complete a grant proposal?

A- The short answer is that I need at least two weeks to do a proper job, which includes amassing necessary information, writing, editing and revising. Government grants require at least four weeks as they are often quite complicated. Time must be built in to consider budgets and final approvals. 

The long answer is that much depends on how prepared your organization is with your history, mission, project description, evaluation process, time line, list of other funders and budgets. If you have all these components at hand, then the process will be shorter.

Q- Do you write one proposal that we can send to many foundations?

A- No. Foundations are like people--each one is unique and has different priorities. One foundation will only fund projects for children; another one only programs for adults in Bucks County; and a third, only capital expenses. Each proposal must be tailored to the particular foundation's priorities. I help my clients determine whether they are a good fit and then I craft proposals in a strategic fashion.
