We are the Grants Collaborative of Tampa Bay, composed of local professionals whose primary job responsibilities include grant planning, proposal writing and/or resource development. Over 55 Members include a broad representation from non-profit human service agencies, local government, independent for-profit consultants, schools, colleges and universities, funding sources and those seeking funding. Formed in 1993 as the Pinellas Grants Collaborative, the name was changed in 2006 to reflect the organization's regional membership. Incorporated as a 501(c)(6), we are now known as the Grants Collaborative of Tampa Bay, Inc.

We provide a forum for resource sharing and mentoring as well as networking opportunities and professional development.

We encourage you to explore our website and join our collaboration of professional grant writers!
