Helpful Tips For Grant Applicants #4
Filed under: PROGRAM DESIGN

4) REQUEST SUPPORT FROM A PERSON NOT A PLACE

This tip is relevant to local and foundation grants. Like it or not, who you know, with whom you’ve built relationships, and whom you’ve schmoozed on the funding side plays a key role in the grant-making process. The test for this lies in your cover letter to an application or in your letter that directly requests funding. Is your salutation addressed to a specific person (that’s excellent) or to a group or generic job title (e.g., “Dear Selection Committee)?

More about this in my new book RIGHT BEFORE YOU WRITE: The Groundbreaking Process Used To Win More Than $385 Million In Competitive Grants.” www.SandyPointInk.com.

The fifth of the five most helpful tips I give grant applicants will appear here tomorrow.
