When communities have the funding resources they need, people can thrive.
Growing a nonprofit organization is hard work. The mission is critical and there’s never enough time in the day. And without adequate funding, your mission will stall. At NightSky Consulting, we partner with change-makers like you to find the best grants and write competitive proposals so you can fund your mission, serve your community, and get back to the work you love.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I pay from the awarded grant or contingency?
No. It is not considered an ethical use of funds to pay from awarded monies/contingency, nor is it allowed by funders. All services are at a fixed rate agreed upon at the beginning of the project.
Can you guarantee my organization will be awarded the grant?
No. The grant funder makes the final determination on who is and is not awarded a grant. Our prospects are based on available information such as giving history, priorities, etc. While an award cannot be guaranteed, you will receive the highest quality research and a competitive proposal.
Our organization is new. How can you help?
We love working with new or early-stage nonprofits! We help by writing grant proposal templates, crafting crisis communication plans and appeal letters, and grant readiness coaching. However, we do not write grants for new nonprofits. If your nonprofit is under 2 years old, it is best to focus your efforts on fundraising and diversifying revenue streams.
