More Than Grants: Risk Assessment

This is a series about services that The Grant Plant provides in addition to our highest-volume offerings of grant research, writing, and reporting.

Being a grant professional, especially in a consulting firm that operates across a variety of industries and sectors, entails much more than “just” writing. It’s about program design, budgeting, data analysis, project management, facilitation, research, and beyond. On our team, we’re fortunate to have more than a dozen exceptional grant professionals. Each team member brings their unique perspective, strategic thinking, and commitment to excellence. 

Because our team thrives on collaboration and continuously strives to better serve our clients, we’ve leveraged our complementary skills to develop a range of service offerings tailored to meet clients’ varying needs. We’ve primarily shared these offerings on an as-needed basis; now we’ve refined our service suite and are looking forward to engaging clients using a cohesive approach to support.
