Clients employ MFRC:

             If they lack staff to continually monitor new grant opportunities, research potential funding sources, write proposals, and keep abreast of funders’ requirements for interim and final reports.    MFRC contracts on a monthly retainer basis to provide ongoing support to the agency—which can include not only proposal and report writing, but preparation of position papers, letters of intent, case statements, and major donor presentations.  Fees for this service are negotiated individually with each client.

 If they face an urgent deadline for a major public or private funding opportunity.  These clients contract with MFRC on a per project basis to write the proposal and prepare the budget.  Project rates based on an hourly estimate are determined for these services; clients are provided with the written estimate.

If they want to develop in house staff expertise in fundraising.  MFRC conducts workshops in proposal writing, prospect research, and program development.  Fees are individually negotiated.

 If they need technical assistance.  MFRC will review and analyze an agency’s proposals and other fundraising materials to make suggestions to improve effectiveness.  Fees are individually negotiated.
