Prospect discovery
Need help finding the right funders? We’ll provide a targeted list of solid prospects including contact information, deadlines, contact strategies, grant range, recommended approach and recommended “ask” amounts.

Board engagement
Board members often come to an organization with a deep commitment to the cause, but without much fundraising experience. We help board members better understand their roles. We also give them the confidence and skills they need to successfully advocate for your organization. Access Philanthropy can also help you establish an advisory council.

Research services
How are you viewed in the local and national grantmaking community? How should you be positioned? Our research provides answers to these key questions, as well as answers to questions you may not have thought to ask.

Grantwriting & proposal submission
You’ll never get a generic grant proposal from us. Instead, you’ll receive a strong, tailor-made proposal that targets the funders most likely to support you. Need help submitting a proposal? We can compile required materials like your budget and executive bios, and make sure your proposal gets out in time.

Funder workshops
We offer over 20 different workshops to help you discover and develop relationships with prospective funders. Workshops include 100 Top Grantmakers and Working with Corporate Funders. We also can create a custom workshop on the topic of your choice.
