Grant Writer Request #01072021A

Primary Purpose:
Raising money for our 501c3 non-profit group to help cover costs of our ongoing programs, special conferences and to increase our money on hand to pay for those stated programs.
We would ideally like to have a long term rental /own site for more permanent housing of the group and this would figure into our overall financial needs. This would be included in our short and long ranges goals.
Programming and Dollar Needs:
We produce several educational and artistic events throughout the year and a larger conference bi-annually. Our operating budget currently is in the $25-30,000 range for an average non-conference year. On conference years our budget increases significantly to around $70,000 to $100,000 depending on the costs for instructors, site location, promotion and other fees.
Project Description:
Provide your hourly rate for research and locating grants for: 3 hours per month for 12 months.   For a total of 36 hours.
We have not had a professional grant writer before. The few grants we've written and obtained have been done by one of our volunteers / members. We would like to increase our funding for the evens and educational opportunities we offer by including a professional grant writer in our plans
Provide your hourly rate for crowdfunding mentoring for: 2 hours per month for 12 months.   For a total of 24 hours.
We have not used a YouHelp page before. We have used Facebook fund raising by individual members and other like minded-organizations who offer grants. These have been small sums. We also have Amazon Smile and a local merchant who provide small amounts of funding through their charitable giving programs.
