About TASC

Our Mission Is to Advance Progressive Causes

Established in 1991 by Merlene Vassall, JD, Technical Assistance & Support Consultants (TASC) assists nonprofit organizations with institutional growth.

TASC’s fund development services range from grant research to proposal development and budget preparation to report writing. TASC also assists organizations with writing and editing a wide range of documents and helps with securing printing and publishing services when needed.

To help build the internal capacity of organizations, TASC offers staff training that incorporates engaging quiz games to improve skills in writing, grantsmanship, and other areas. TASC develops customized training programs that focus on needs defined by the client, such as ensuring that staff are well-versed in the particular client’s organizational policies and procedures.

In all of our work, TASC is committed to providing progressive organizations with the technical assistance they need to achieve their goals. Read more.
