Grant Writing

Many nonprofit organizations depend heavily on grant funding from federal, state and local government as well as corporate and community grant makers. Grant writing refers to the practice of completing an application process that is outlined by a funder. It is important to never depend solely on grants to support your organization! Rather, grants should be part of an overall diversified fundraising plan. Grants are useful for funding new projects or initiatives but it's a challenge to find grants that fund ongoing work or administrative costs. The resources provided here will give you a basic understanding of how to create a successful grant proposal.
