Organizations with Experience Winning Grants
Since 1968, Blossom Hill has provided loving homes and personalized care to adults with developmental disabilities. In the summer of 2020, the then new CEO of Blossom Hill, Lisa Kristosik, realized the need to increase grant revenues. She enlisted Grants Plus in a partnership to help broaden their funder base and build new, longer lasting funder connections.
Our work began with grant prospect research to review existing funders as well as identify new funding possibilities. We recommended a game plan that prioritized 40 funders as strong prospects for Blossom Hill. In the following months, Lisa and Development Director, Lori Inks, benefited from coaching and support from Grants Plus to forge relationships with these funders, while the Grants Plus team crafted and submitted a steady stream of grant applications to both existing funders and new prospects.
This strategic approach soon paid off. By activating their Grants Plus game plan, Blossom Hill secured an invitation from a significant funder to apply for funding within the first 30 minutes of a virtual site visit, as well as developed new relationships with additional funders in their grants game plan. Within their first two years of partnering with Grants Plus, Blossom Hill has achieved a return on their investment of 161% with total grant awards of over $260,000 to date.
"Blossom Hill could have never identified these potential funding partners without Grants Plus. Our partnership has allowed for so many new opportunities for our organization and helped to get our organization more visibility in the community. The teamwork and collaboration have been just outstanding!"
Ms. Lisa Kristosik, MSN, RN
