Our Services

What services does Kelsey Thomas offer?

Kelsey Thomas is comprised of highly trained professionals who know exactly where to look for grants, how to apply to them, and all of the ins and outs of grant writing and applications. We will help your business develop a strong mission and business plan if necessary to start the grant application process. Kelsey Thomas Consulting has ten years of experience in finding the grants that have a smaller number of applicants, inherently increasing your chances of being awarded the grant. KTC also works to find its clients a large list of grants to apply for. The more grants you apply for, the more likely you are to receive an award. Additionally, Kelsey Thomas' expertise in writing grant applications will immediately make your company stand out to the grantor; we know what they are looking for.

After a grant is written and submitted for consideration, the average wait time for approval is 6-8 weeks. Kelsey Thomas Consulting can typically write and submit a grant application within 1-7 days of selection of the first grant by a client. Kelsey Thomas clients apply for grants of $50,000 up to $4,000,000 each. Many private grantors will either announce awardee lists per grant when they are published or to release a statement confirming the funds have been awarded.
