The LAPA Desk Study
LAPA’s Desk Study takes 60 to 90 days and provides you with a blueprint for deepening and expanding your cultivation and solicitation of individuals, foundations, and/or government or corporate support.
When preparing your fundraising material, LAPA maps your programs to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), allowing you to assess your work against a global standard.

We conduct funder interviews
LAPA conducts interviews with your top funding prospects to ensure we have a direct answer on the best approach for your organization. These interviews also serve to cultivate larger grants from your current supporters and develop relationships with new foundations.
We create tailored messaging

We craft an implementation plan
