Fuel has written cases for grants and giving to many of the schools and units of the University of Hawaii, including the John A. Burns School of Medicine and the William S. Richardson School of Law.

Grant Writing

Grant writing includes research to identify potential grant making organizations, letters of inquiry, and grant proposal review and evaluation.

Grant proposals should reflect the voice and thinking of those responsible for the conception and execution of the project. Fuel works closely with key members of your organization—usually spending a day or two on-site—to ensure that your proposal truly communicates the passion of the people and organization behind it.

If you have a specific grant in mind and need help in preparing and writing your grant, Fuel grant writing services can help. Grant writing services are offered at a fixed per hour rate. Grants vary in complexity and length, so the cost can vary. The typical cost of full grant preparation ranges from $4,000 to $8,000. We do not work on a percentage or commission basis.


Fuel has considerable experience developing business proposals aimed at acquiring new business or that respond to RFPs. While most of these are created on paper, we also work with graphics professionals to develop proposals and presentations that use PowerPoint and other presentation applications.

Business Plans

Fuel works with your company to pull together all the components that make for a successful business plan—from the executive summary, business description and market strategies to the competitive analysis and operations and management plans.
