KAF Catalyst

We write grants.



Our Model

KAF Catalyst is full-service grant writing shop. We can manage your entire grants calendar on retainer or you can engage one our grant writers to help you on a per-project basis. Because our employees are virtual, part-time employees, we're able to keep our costs low and our quality high to make a big impact on the nonprofits we serve.

We are a good fit for organizations with annual budgets between $500,000 and $5 million who have (or need to grow) a healthy grants program, but who may not require (or cannot afford) a full-time grants manager. 


Our Services

Grant writing, reporting, and management takes time. Let us help you administer your institutional giving program so you can focus on individual and major gifts donors. 



Per-project: you give us the assignment, we get it done.

Retainer: our account manager does the tracking and assigning - and we get it done.

grants management

From deadlines to reporting, we see your grants all the way through the annual funding cycle. Let's get those government grants off your plate, stat. 


We can help grow your revenue from grants by identifying and researching qualified prospects and setting strategy. We know the funding landscape - we can connect your projects with funders' strategic priorities.

program development

Beyond grants, we can also help develop giving programs for corporate funders, including corporate membership and sponsorship.
