June First Firm typically works with medium sized nonprofits on a monthly retainer. We specialize in serving nonprofits that provide healthcare, housing, K-12 education, and workforce development education services.
We will be the first to tell you to hire a full time grant writer staff member if that fits the needs of your nonprofit. However, nonprofits that retain our grant writing services are looking for additional support and professional level expertise for a reduced cost of a full time senior level in-house grant writer. June First Firm annual cost for a senior level experienced grant writer and coach/consultant is about $60,000. A full time senior level grant professional is $98,946 (Glassdoor, June 2023). Annually, your organization can save approximately $40,000 retaining June First Firm services.
June First Firm does not receive payment for services from the grant award. The most reputable grant professionals will NOT accept payment from the grant award as those funds are designed to fund the project described. Also, June First Firm follows the standards of the Grant Professionals Association Code of Ethics.
June First Firm takes grant writing projects from start to finish to create the needs assessment, project details, objectives, and evaluation etc. Once the proposal is written, you will receive it for your review. After you make any necessary corrections, a final package is prepared for submission.
June First Firm uses a multi-pronged approach to conduct a funding landscape analysis to determine the perfect fit for your organization. There are multiple subscriptions used for grant research, including GrantStation and Foundation Directory.
