The BLESID team conducts prospect research, the first step in evaluating which donor or foundation interests align with your nonprofit’s goals. We provide a detailed list of funders at the start of our engagement and update the list annually for our clients. We also provide the first contact to the donors to verify interest and alignment with their current initiatives and guidelines to determine the best approach for your funding request.
LETTERS OF INQUIRY
Many funders require a brief Letter of Inquiry (“LOI”) as an introduction for funding. BLESID will assist your nonprofit in writing an LOI that meets the required guidelines and format for each funder.
