Funding

We help clients cultivate relationships and develop new approaches to resource development. We write and revise proposals to federal agencies and private foundations. We help our clients refine their message and strengthen their case for support.

Government

We represent our clients to elected officials and agencies in Washington, DC and at the state and local levels. We have an extensive network and personal relationships with public officials across the country. We closely track education policy developments and use that knowledge to benefit our clients.
