Building a Credible Story

Creating strong convincing grants requires an understanding of both the applicant’s and funder’s goals and objectives, and communicating how one’s success will help the other achieve theirs.   

Development

At verve, our support starts with understanding your objectives, the project and all the elements that go into a successful project: stakeholders and partners, budget development and schedule. We also ensure that your objectives and project align with the individual funding and grant programs, so valuable time and resources are not wasted.  

Writing

Our writers translate strategy into a compelling and memorable story that conveys a comprehensive program and the value it brings to the community. They balance emotional and business with practical language for the reviewers and decision makers. 

Quality Review

 A quality review is more than proofreading. It evaluates the draft application against the requirements and criteria. It identifies where questions are unanswered or where more value can be communicated. Reviews include editing and refinement to ensure every word and character express impact.
