Nothing Should Keep Your Nonprofit From Changing the World

At Spark Point, we have a system in place to manage all of the moving parts and keep you focused on grant-seeking strategy and funder relationships.

Organizations with an established grant portfolio know there’s more to the work than getting proposals out the door. There’s nuanced relationship management, constant prospecting and cultivation—and a million details to keep track of.

To keep growing through it all, sometimes you need some help.

Free Up Space and Energy to Focus on Relationships

We seamlessly join your team and manage everything you don’t have time to do. From creating and managing a grants calendar, to assisting with funder meetings and project management, to coordinating with your program staff to write and submit proposals, we handle it all. 

That way you can devote your limited resources to nurturing your existing relationships and cultivating new ones to keep your revenue flourishing.

We Clear the Way for Your Nonprofit to Pursue its Mission 

Your Spark Point team consists of an operations associate, grant writer, and client manager/strategist. We get up to speed quickly and provide the expertise that points you in the right direction when it's needed. Our collaborative method is designed to empower, not intrude. On average, a six-month engagement brings in $100,000 in new funding, but we strive to support your work in the long term.

Our sustainable approach gives you a framework to keep details in order, your relationships thriving, and your mission leading the way.


Kristen Kozlowski

Associate Director of Development – Bread for the City

In almost four years working together, Spark Point and Bread for the City have built a strategic and high-impact partnership that has supported our growth from a budget of almost $11 million to more than $15 million.  During that time, Spark Point's team has raised almost $12 million to support our programs and to help us build our Michelle Obama Southeast Center, which opened in early 2021.  Not only are they great partners, but they are truly a joy to work with.  We love Spark Point Fundraising!

Director of Development & Communications - New Endeavors by Women

Working with Spark Point is the easiest way to increase our fundraising impact. As an experienced fundraising professional, I know firsthand the stress of managing a complex grant calendar. It can be challenging to balance reports and proposals with individual donor outreach and relationship development. The team at Spark Point takes the stress out of this process. They allow my team to build meaningful connections while seamlessly managing our grant writing and reports. In addition, the staff has the expertise that comes from years of practice in the field. The team at Spark Point isn’t just a group of contractors- they are full-fledged members of our team. They took the time to get to know our organization and our staff on a deep level. I trust each team member because they genuinely care about our staff and our clients. They laugh with us, celebrate with us, and cheer us on through tough times.Investing in Spark Point’s services is an investment in any organization’s future financial sustainability. I wholeheartedly recommend them to any organization navigating the ever-changing funding landscape.



Melissa Fowler

Chief Program Officer - National Abortion Federation

In almost two years working with Spark Point we've been able to refresh and expand our foundation fundraising strategy and bring several new funders into our portfolio. It's been incredibly helpful to have them keeping track of all of the details, giving me and my team time to focus on relationship building and management. We've learned a lot from their strategic guidance and it's led to some big and exciting wins.

Executive Director – Safe Shores – The DC Children’s Advocacy Center

When Safe Shores was experiencing staffing changes in our development team, I reached out to Spark Point for support navigating the transition. Their thoughtful and systematic approach helped keep us on-track during our hiring search, and they helped us consolidate and organize all of our foundation deadlines and materials to set us up for continued success. They took time to listen respectfully, quickly understood Safe Shores’ mission, and worked seamlessly and calmly to manage deadlines. Just as importantly, we were able to build a strong rapport in a short period of time, making our work together productive and even enjoyable!

Chief Program Officer - Young Survivor Coalition

In working with Spark Point, we gained a relationship with a team that understands our mission and wanted to use their skills and expertise to further that mission. I felt that Spark Point was invested in our work, even though they weren't here full time, and they are approachable, enthusiastic, and professional. Ultimately, we didn't just win a big grant, we gained a partner that we could run things by and a new level of knowledge.


Steve Sagner

Former Associate Dean for Development - NYU Tandon School of Engineering

Whitney Brimfield is an excellent proposal writer, prospector, and strategist for approaches to institutional funders, and I know that many clients love and value her work. She undertook a complex diagnostic project for NYU's engineering school—identifying academic and programmatic areas where we might have potential fundraising success with foundations and corporations, and developing approaches for each field. I recommend her highly, and just this week gave her name to someone looking for a great consultant!
