Grants

ZIM Consulting

We are thrilled to partner with ZIM Consulting for grant writing and research. In 2006, ZIM Consulting was founded because Marty Zimmerman and Shira Zimmerman saw a need. There were (and continue to be) an abundance of nonprofit organizations in Colorado, but many were having difficulty building the organizational capacity to truly support their missions. There also were (and continue to be) many nonprofit consultants who help nonprofits with various projects, but most of them develop plans without assisting with implementation. ZIM Consulting works with nonprofits to develop attainable objectives, set realistic benchmarks, and complete tasks on the path to achieving their goals. Find more by clicking here.
