Grantwriting Tips

Here are tips for writing a successful grant from expert Karen Glaser, a grantwriting consultant for more than 25 years.
  1. Find (or develop) a grantwriting guru.
    A full- or part-time grantwriter can do the time-consuming research and paperwork for one school or an entire district. With just a few wins, the position pays for itself!

  2. Think "resume"
    Like a job resume, your proposal should be tailored to the grant source's needs and ideals.

  3. Bad fit? Move on!
    If your idea doesn't match the source's criteria, don't waste time trying to convince them it will. Concentrate your efforts on finding more suitable sources instead.
    Never ask for more than top dollar. Respect the foundation's limits.

  4. When in doubt, ask.
    If you have questions, don't hesitate to make contact with funding source - it shows your interest in their organization.
