Grant Research

Grant Research Services

Whether you're relatively new to grant writing or your organization has a fully established grants program, there are likely many funding opportunities that you're missing. ZIM's grant research services are completely customized to your programs and target audience, and the research results in profiles of potential funders whose priority areas align with your organization's work and offer a mix of funding strategies (e.g. general-operating support, program support, capacity-building support, etc.).
As your grant research partner, ZIM will:
  • Research all potential funders (corporate, foundation and government entities) to determine relevancy and likelihood of success. Funders will focus on local and national private foundations and corporations, along with government funding opportunities if desired.
  • Create a research booklet that will be owned by your organization and will include:
    • Contact information
    • Profiles including assets, background, mission, and vision
    • Grant process
    • Relevant funding interests and priorities
    • Staff and Board contacts
    • Relevant previous funding information
    • Recent grant funding ranges
    • Suggested request angle and amount.
  • Develop a suggested grants calendar that is based on the outcomes from the research ​and focuses on the most likely funders.
  • Help you make calls – as needed – to top-tier grant prospects, providing strategic insights, recommendations, and coaching.
