Azimuth Helps Meriwether County Schools Secure $2.5M in New Grant Dollars
George E. Washington Elementary School Book Adventures Program wins a Dollar General grant award that will provide targeted reading materials to approximately 100 students who would normally have no access to appropriate reading materials throughout the summer. The program is designed to provide reading and review materials for struggling readers to help them better prepare for the next grades.
In October 2018, Azimuth opened a satellite office in Atlanta, Georgia to better-serve our clients. Since then, we have worked with rural school systems, municipalities, nonprofits, and Defense contractors throughout the state to secure additional grant funding. We are excited about our growth in Georgia and look forward to helping more organizations fund their mission.
1-Year Grant Strategy
Azimuth has added a 1-Year Grant Strategy to our slate of services. The Strategy identifies relevant public and private grant opportunities and provides detailed guidance regarding how to apply, when to apply, and how to develop a competitive application for each opportunity. The opportunities are presented in date order and organized by quarters to assist with implementation planning. As part of the Strategy, Azimuth performs a strengths, opportunities, aspirations, and results (SOAR™) analysis to assess your organization’s grant readiness.
