Grant Management Associates was founded by Kristin Cooper Carter, a former Full Professor in the College of Engineering at California State University, Chico, who has over twenty-five years' experience designing programs as both a grant writer and project manager.
GMA uses a selective team approach attuned to each client that capitalizes on decades of collective specialized experience. Our carefully selected team of twenty-seven grant and funding experts nationwide provides a depth of expertise that is unmatched by any other firm, with an 87.6% funding rate since 2009.
GMA's specialties are:
Grant Writing Consulting - funding research, opportunity analysis, proposal design, grant writing
Budgets - development, justification and forms completion
Funding Identification - government loans, tax credits and incentives
Fiscal Administration - Invoicing, cash flow, amendments, and reporting Bid/Procurement opportunities
We understand that many organizations lack the personnel that it takes to stay on top of new funding opportunities. They tell us that they don't have the time to attend to the numerous details in completing grant and loan applications or in following grant compliance procedures. Yet, for so many of them, grant funding is or could be a critical source of income.
We work closely with organizations to clarify funding needs, introduce our clients to the funding agencies, research and influence funding opportunities, prepare grant proposals and loan documents, and provide project management as well as reporting process assistance.
As part of the grant maker and funder research process, you can expect our team to complete the following activities as appropriate to your organization’s needs:
Search for Federal, State and public/private and corporate grant makers on the local, regional and national level from our database, subscription databases include Foundation Directory Online, GrantStation and EfficientGov Grant Finder, as well as other sources.
Contact potential funders as needed
Provide a categorized matrix of potential funders with contact information, grant deadlines, average awards and funding priorities.
Recommendations as to the “best fit” potential funders and a process for approaching the identified funders based on the past funding trends, thier mission, goals and program activities of your organization, and its current funding needs.
A Proven Track Record
Grant Management Associates has generated over $362.39 million in grants.
