The Discovery Process

We collaborate. We listen. We discover.

There are many factors that contribute to the probability of winning a grant, and equally as many components that weigh against winning a well-drafted proposal. We want to uncover those with you. It is a process of discovery, not mechanics.

The Grant Garden Advantage

Detailed Analysis

Your reviewers are busy and pressed for time. An outside critical eye ensures they have the clearest presentation of your program. Our critique is offered in a questioning format similar to the questions a reviewer may have as they read your proposal.

Program Evaluation

Your proposals benefit from years of program evaluation description and nonprofit experience. This saves you money by reducing time to prepare a proposal, while more clearly and accurately presenting your project.

Collaboration, not competition

Grant Garden will partner with you to grow your organization and  serve your unique population, using community-based solutions and collaborations.

Most grant opportunities require partners. We encourage local collaboration as a community building strategy versus proprietary competition.

New Mexico is underrepresented in federal expenditures. Collaboration increases the chances of winning national grant awards. Competition makes New Mexico look disorganized nationally and less desirable as an investment for grant funding.

Funding Likelihood


Once you identify a grant, learning about previous awardees lets you know if your program fits the funding pattern. If available, Grant Garden will obtain copies of their proposals in order to improve your likelihood of funding.

Program Plan


If you are applying for a grant and would like a program review, our practices and tools can ensure you have competitive descriptions. You will learn these practices and tools by participating in our program plan review.

Program Evaluation


Some grant proposals require an evaluation plan. We can provide the text for this section, while you provide the narrative for the remainder of the proposal. For this, we will need either a logic model or program narrative.

Grant Proposal

With two weeks prior to deadline, a proposal review will check for reviewer ability to easily score your proposal, the match between your proposal narrative and grant purpose, and ease of reading and understanding of proposal goals, objectives and activities.

Grant Proposal

Coaching will give you just-in-time training as you take responsibility and control of the writing of your own proposal. Training includes practical tools you will keep and use, language standards that facilitate understanding and scoring, and project-specific suggestions. 

Full Grant Proposal

This partnership requires constant regular communication where you provide critical descriptions and information about your program. Grant Garden will then assemble a proposed project you have the capacity to carry out. 

Let's work together

We believe that our evaluation tools will improve your ability to win grants.

Grant Garden will speak with any organization for free. Our pricing structure includes sharing financial risk. We base our fees on available information, clarity of project conception, and complexity of the grant requirements.
