Concierge Service: Grant Application
The Concierge Service: Grant Application offers DANA nonprofit members assistance with non-government grant applications. While DANA cannot guarantee success in grant awards, we hope through this assistance, nonprofits can be better poised to successfully compete for grants. DANA technical advisors will work with member nonprofits on grant applications in the following way:
- An overall grant review with a feedback report & a virtual meeting for a 30-minute walkthrough of feedback with the technical advisor (first one is free!)
- Discounted technical assistance to complete financial reports, such as program budgets and cash flow projections
- Discounted technical assistance to edit case for support commentary
To apply for your initial free grant review, DANA members can easily apply by clicking here: Complete Form
In order to give the Technical Advisor the necessary time to provide quality assistance, turn around for questions and feedback, requests must be within two weeks of the grant deadline. After registering, a DANA team member and/or the Technical Advisor will contact you to acquire the necessary information to assist. If you believe additional support is needed beyond the initial request, you can place a request for additional help at the following rates:
(1) an additional grant review for $50;
(2) a financial analysis, which includes assistance with either program budgeting or cash flow projections, for $125; and
(3) writing and/or editing a case for support for $125
These services can be purchased here.
If you have any questions, please contact Nicole at [email protected] or check the Nonprofit FAQs for Grant Application Concierge Service.
Register at least two weeks prior to your grant deadline. Respond to the Technical Advisor within 24 hours to provide them with the necessary information/items.
This service is available only to DANA members. If you are interested in this service, but are not a DANA member, please click here.
*Please understand that we cannot guarantee you will be awarded the grant associated with the application(s) with which we provide assistance.

Nonprofit Virtual Assistant
Nonprofit organizations face unique challenges when it comes to sustainability and growth.
