Cohesive Solutions to improve the impact of grants

CoSo helps nonprofits find the right funders, develop evidence-based programs, document client outcomes, streamline the grantseeking process and submit competitive applications.


    CoSo is a collaborative endeavor between experienced consultants working in a range of disciplines to help nonprofits tell their stories in ways that inspire funders to action. We share a common mission to help nonprofits improve success rates in their grant programs, improve client and community outcomes, and create and manage sustainable organizational growth.

    With decades of experience developing successful grant proposals –from complex federal grant applications involving multiple partners to simple letters of intent to family foundations for a single program – we strive to tell cohesive stories that are strategic, creative and compelling.
