Reports and Proposals Service - for Grantees

Key Benefit: This service allows you to take full advantage of every grant you receive from a grantor by asking them to leverage their financial commitment to you into a helping hand that just may land you inside of a grantor network. Making the ask in the context of a report or proposal renewal allows you to frame the request in terms of investment maximization. We will provide you with the language for asks that are not difficult for your grantor to implement, and which will bring you great benefit.

Never let a report or fund renewal request go out the door again without a request for your grantor to leverage its relationship in grantor networks toward your benefit. When you are featured there, the grantor's credibility is enhanced through your issue knowledge and good work. Do not miss this valuable opportunity to begin a dialog about yet another way your sponsor can be helpful to you.

In this service, echo will assist you by creating language to insert into your reports and proposals suggesting specific ways you might work together with your grantor to leverage your expertise into grantor networks. We will propose ways your grantors might help you make use of the current capabilities and platforms now in place at the major grantor networks where your organization has an interest. These will be highly reflective of the realities and constraints of grantor networks and also of grantor sensitivities.

Our inserted language will suggest all the ways your grantors might make their contributions to you go that much farther. These might be by:

  • Submitting items about the results of their grantmaking with you to the newsletters of grantor alliances they are now members of. These newsletters and related communications tools reach dozens of member grantors at once, many of them allied funders of your field.
  • Sponsoring you as an educational speaker on your issue set before grantors within key grantor networks that are highly relevant to your work.
  • Suggesting other kinds of content (such as an online webinar for members of grantor networks valuable to your field) which you might create with your grantor to educate other grantors on your issues

Price varies depending on the number of reports/proposals being written.
