Outsourced Grant Management
During the growth of every nonprofit, there comes a time when you need grant management help, but you’re not ready to hire a full-time grant professional or team. At that point, it’s time to outsource to the grant experts at BryteBridge.
If you’re like most nonprofit organizations, it is difficult to accomplish all that must be done each month to move your nonprofit forward. Along with your vision, there are plenty of tasks to meet your goals. But it’s people-power you need to turn those ideas into reality. That’s where the grant management solution by BryteBridge comes in to help your nonprofit gain operational efficiency by leveraging existing resources and scale to provide ongoing grant research, writing, and management to support your organization.
Our team will work with you in 3, 6- or 12-month engagements to help you set and pursue your grant and development goals. At the start of working together, you’ll be assigned a Grant Coordinator who will meet with you to understand your organization and long-term goals. At the foundation of our grant management program is transparency and communication.
Each month, you’ll meet with your Grant Coordinator for a 60-minute recap and strategy call to review and provide updates and align on goals for the upcoming month.
Overview of BryteBridge Grant Management Services

Outsourced grant management services provide nonprofit organizations with a team of partners specializing in grant research, grant writing, and ongoing management to nonprofits with access to more resources than most internal teams.

Our grant research service is a limited-time engagement and limits nonprofits to what is available at that moment and time. The grant management services offer an alternative to hiring an in-house grant management team.
Grant management is designed for organizations that want ongoing grant research but are either not ready to hire an in-house grant management team, do not want the added overhead, or do not have the financial means to hire a grant management team.
Our grant management services include a grant coordinator, grant writer, and information pulled from multiple grant databases and grant management technology.
Each grant management package includes a case statement explicitly created for your organization’s programs, foundation research based on the package size chosen, a dedicated grant coordinator to provide grant readiness guidance and education, and a dedicated grant writer.
We seek grant funding solely from private foundations.
Historically, grantors required a formal grant proposal document as the initial approach for funding, but recently many grantors have moved to online portals for their initial grant applications. The case statement replaces outdated proposal documents and answers most foundations’ questions.
Each case statement includes the following:
- Organizational Information
- Need Statement
A Letter of Inquiry (also known as a Letter of Intent) allows the grantor to better gauge and understand your organization’s programs to determine if they are interested in learning more about your organization. This document consists of a one- or two-page brief of the proposed project or programs requiring funding. Some foundations require this letter as the initial application to ensure the project falls within their giving guidelines. The foundation may then request in-depth information to decide.
Grantors may request any, or all, of the following documents to be included with grant applications:
- A copy of the organization’s IRS Determination Letter
- The organization’s operational & program budgets for the next fiscal year
- A copy of the organization’s most recently filed 990s (not 990n)
- A copy of the organization’s last audited financial statement
- A current list of all board members, executive leadership, and paid staff
- A list of major donors, including grantors, corporate sponsors, etc.
If you are denied funding because a grantor does not support your geographical location or the foundation does not support programs like yours, we will replace that grant application with another. Foundation requirements are subject to change and may not be updated in our databases. We will not replace the application if the funding is denied simply because the foundation has chosen to fund a different program or organization.
No, it would be unethical to make such a promise. However, we guarantee thorough research and the quality of the applications we submit. We work hard to understand what foundations are looking for, and we customize all applications to the specific formats requested by grantors. Getting funded largely depends on your organization’s history of successful program implementation, the quality of programs offered, the methodology utilized, and proven long-term financial sustainability. Between the proactive steps you take with your organization and our services, we feel confident we can help bring you closer to obtaining grant funding.
Some grant applicants may be approved for and receive funding within a year, while others may take years to obtain grant funding. However, just like advertising to create awareness, grant funding must be implemented as part of many diversified fundraising strategies. This is why we offer ongoing grant management services. Applying for grants can be lengthy, and it may take several attempts over multiple years with the same grantors before an organization is approved for funding.
No. This practice is considered against the American Association of Grant Professionals’ code of ethics. BryteBridge does not engage in any practice that may hinder your organization’s chance of receiving funding.
Yes! Our BryteBridge Cares foundation offers microgrants to nonprofit organizations of all sizes. Learn more about this opportunity.
