Although grant proposals are far from being the answer to a funding emergency, they do play a critical role in supporting most nonprofits, educational institutions and charities. However, for many, getting started can feel like a daunting task. Grants can come from a variety of sources such as a foundation, a corporation or a government agency, but most require similar information. With the sufficient amount of time and attention dedicated to grant writing, your district or school can make grant writing a successful part of their overall funding strategy.
Grants, to be successful, should include key timelines, evidence and research, and be supported by an enthusiastic grant writing team, whether on staff, in a volunteer capacity, or contracted. This grant writing training presentation outlines the most common sections of grant proposals, the information they should include, where to find grant opportunities, an overview of what funders want to read, and how to form a grant writing team to support grant writing success.
