grant writing

Well crafted grant narratives and budgets tell the story of your nonprofit and compel grantmakers to fund your programs, projects, and services.

How do you currently tell the story of your work to grantmakers?

Cook Creative and Consulting is a full-service grant writing shop that helps you find and secure funding. I help you with any part of the grant writing process from funding research to writing. I also produce collateral and supplementary materials for grant applications, including annual reports, organizational overviews, and program brochures.
