Grant Resources Of Wisconsin (Now offering assistance throughout the country)

(GROW) has been providing grant-seeking, program development, grant-writing, and evaluation services to Wisconsin school districts, municipalities, and non-profit organizations for the past 15 years.  Their team of writers and evaluators has worked on a wide variety of state, federal, corporate, and foundation grant programs, with a success rate of over 60%.  For example, over the past 8 years, eligible Wisconsin applicants have obtained nearly 100 Federal Carol M. White Physical Education Program (PEP) grant awards.  The GROW office has written nearly half of those successful awards for applicants all across the State of Wisconsin.  Fee arrangements are flexible, ranging from hourly rates to nominal up-front charges with award-contingent fees, and are based on the complexity and viability of targeted grant programs and the nature of the services requested.  For further information, contact:
