We help education institutions achieve and exceed their grants funding goals

Since our founding in 2007, the Grants Plus team has helped organizations across the country secure more than $300 million in grant funding from private, corporate, and government funders. We have over 300 years of collective experience, and are adept at assisting colleges and universities find, pursue, and win grants.

1700% ROI and over $3m in grant awards

Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences began working with Grants Plus to diversify the institution’s revenue sources. The Grants Plus team identified fifty foundation prospects that matched to the college’s mission and program objectives. We have since provided staff and leadership with cultivation guidance and grant writing support. As a result, the college nearly tripled its grant revenues in the first year of working with Grants Plus. Over the lifetime of our partnership, Christ College has celebrated combined awards of $3.2 million, including three successfully-funded Choose Ohio First grants, and an ROI of 1,710%. The college has received $18 for every $1 invested in our services.

“I love my work with Grants Plus,” says Brad Jackson, Vice President of Strategy and Business Affairs. “I can’t imagine what the team could do better to improve the work.”

What our partners are saying

“As we work to elevate foundation relations as a university priority, Grants Plus provided us an invaluable starting point. In talking through our priorities and interviewing administrators and faculty on campus, Grants Plus was able to provide a tiered list of funders with alignments to the work being done on campus. That list has served as a strategic springboard, focusing the efforts of our team, creating new conversations with campus partners, and offering early wins for our team.”
