Grant Writing

Grant-writing, or more accurately grant proposal writing, is best accomplished by a professional with a good grasp of the needs of both the organization looking for funding and of the funding source itself. 

Given that there are tens of thousands of foundations, trusts and granting organizations in the U.S. alone, just finding the most likely match(es) can be a tedious and time consuming process, even before the actual proposal writing begins.  It therefore almost goes without saying that the grant proposal writer must be prepared to devote endless hours to research and to ensuring the funding organization’s guidelines are met. 

Few organizations have the staff time available to contribute to such an effort.  Yet an experienced grant-writer may well already have a good understanding of what's "out there" in your particular field, whether it's arts & culture, education, social services, housing, children's athletics, what have you.

In addition, the person writing the grant proposal should be able to write clearly and succinctly, have a keen eye for detail, and be able to follow what may sometimes seem like unnecessarily complicated or convoluted directions.
