Grant writing is an art. A combination of research, sales and story telling, each one is different. But whether you need an application for Celebrate Ontario, Going Global Innovation, or Green Infrastructure, let us use our grant writing success totaling millions to apply for your funding. See below for descriptions and links for portals, and a few select grant ideas.
Before you can even apply for that funding, pitch that new client, or market your product, you need a strategy that sings. Let us write your lyrics.
From advertorials, to attraction packages, to website or brochure copy, let the team at Write to Work create a compelling story that does more than spread words.
