Yes we can (at least in theory).
We get a lot of interest from the not-for-profit sector... but end up working with only a few organisations.
There are a couple of reasons for this:
- These organisations are reluctant pay upfront / on-submission fees
- These organisations are ran by committees making it harder to make decisions
- These organisations are ran by volunteers and are less organised
When these organisations become aware of our fee structure, they generally need to discuss this within their committees ... and we never hear from them again (has happened 50+ times). As members of Grant Solutions have held executive positions on a number of committees, we understand the difficulties involved in making decisions... especially when money is involved.
Therefore we generally prefer that not-for-profit organisations discuss these issues BEFORE contacting us... so time is not wasted.
A wise man once said that: a camel is a horse designed by a committee.
