Grant Research

We offer in-depth, targeted research to help clients build successful funding plans for future growth. After learning about an organization’s vision and funding priorities, we perform in-depth grant research, utilizing a variety of modalities and subscription-only databases to identify attainable funding prospects and help create a successful annual grant calendar.

Monitoring & Evaluation

LSC’s M&E experts will help you measure, analyze, understand, and report on your organization’s impact. We provide a complete assessment of your reporting needs, identify key metrics, and develop data-gathering tools and systems to increase response rates and reduce the burden on your program staff. Our collaborative approach is functional, adaptable, and effective because it facilitates staff and community engagement to build consensus around M&E systems.
