Grant Writing Season Is Almost Here

figure sitting at deskGet ready!  Grant writing season is almost here.

In fact, some grant deadlines are already upon us at the end of August – who would be so cruel as to make the end of August a deadline for grant applications?  Summer is so short!

Here is a tip to get help you get ready:

Prepare a folder on your computer with all the documents you will need for grant writing such as:

  • audited financial statements
  • operating budget
  • budget narrative
  • biographies
  • board lists
  • staff lists
  • staff resumes
  • history of the organization
  • info on partnerships
  • accomplishments to date
  • and whatever else your organization usually needs in order to submit grants.

Make sure that you have a working copy in the folder as well as a PDF.

When you’re “burning the midnight oil”, you’ll be glad you had all this prepared and ready to attach.
