Ricks Creative Agency LLC provides premier non-profit development and grant writing services. We create and deliver masterful grant proposals to get your organization the funding that it needs for the wonderful, inspirational, and love-inspired programs that you run.
We use writing and research artistry and craftsmanship, apply the right technical brush strokes, and utilize the paint drops and canvas size that you select, to paint a vivid picture of the future possibilities that your organizations' programs and services will bring to our world.
We offer customized service packages based on an evaluation of your organization's needs and project scope as well as a palette of services from which you can select the individual paint drops that fit your objectives.
The first step is to evaluate if your organization is prepared to receive and apply for funding for grants. If not, we can guide you through the needed preparatory steps. This is the PRIME stage.
Once the primer has set you then move on to the next stage which is where the artistry of developing your winning grant proposal really happens. This is where we work with you to fully understand your organization, missions, needs, budget, program goals, and objectives, and piece all of these individual paint drops together to create a grant proposal and strategy for applying to selected funding opportunities. This is the PAINT stage.
Once all of the applications have been submitted, we can work with you to track the funding, follow up with grantors, draft thank you letters, and evaluate the grant application process to make changes and updates for future funding requests. This is the VARNISH stage.
Finally, every step of our grant writing services is always executed with passion, professionalism, and love.

Proposal Development consists of building out a full grant proposal based on your organization's mission, vision, needs, objectives, goals, and project budget. We help you to creatively and concisely bring your amazing mission-oriented goals to paper and develop a comprehensive proposal that is an asset to your organization. This proposal is a stand-alone document that does not include an application to any particular funding opportunity. If you already have a proposal that was developed by your team or another grant writer we can also review and rewrite for updates, changes, and improvements.
Do you desire to bring your organization to grant funding to help support your mission? Enquire now to learn how the right grant writing and funding strategy can help you to accomplish more!
Just like a beautiful portrait needs varnish to seal everything in, your responsibilities are not completed
once the grant checks start rolling in. Often funders will want updates and evaluations to track and show
what you have done with their generous contributions.
We offer this service only to clients that we have written, applied to, and won grants for.
