Our Organization

Paul Oostenbrug established East Bridge Consultants in 1998 to apply the skills he has honed during 25 years of program development, marketing, and proposal writing.

Paul's expertise ranges from the design of new products and services to the development of proposals and grant applications to the measurement of program outcomes.

During over 15 years of successful consulting experience, Paul has served more than 125 clients. He works with a network of talented independent consultants who can be called in to meet almost any client need.

Paul has affirmed his expertise by attaining Grant Professional Certification (GPC) awarded upon examination by the Grant Professional Certification Institute (GPCI). Details at www.grantcredential.org.

Types of Consulting

Many of East Bridge Consultants' grant writing and proposal projects are performed by Paul on a solo basis. These projects often require a quick turn-around. Their success always relies on Paul's knowledge and understanding of the client organization, its programs, and the communities it serves.

Project Management

To keep projects on track, Paul Oostenbrug draws on his background in health care program development and grant/proposal writing. He uses a "manage by project" model, a system he learned while working on major projects for health care clients. He maintains a project calendar complete with timelines to ensure that all deliverables meet the anticipated deadlines. East Bridge Consultants receives client approval before progressing to the next stage of any engagement.

Consultant Network

When East Bridge Consultants undertakes projects that are large in scope or require specialized skills, Paul relies on colleagues with proven expertise with whom he has worked effectively in the past. These colleagues' skills include:
  • Evaluation research
  • Nonprofit strategic planning
  • Fundraising--individual gifts and corporate marketing
  • Policy analysis
  • Knowledge of specific government agencies or programs
