Helped with grant proposals for a nonprofit ballet company
on July 18, 2016
This book helped me write grant proposals for a nonprofit ballet company. As shown by our successful proposals, this Guide really helped.
Let's put this in terms of writing papers for college. Remember term papers? Remember courses where you had ONE term paper? So everything is riding on that ONE paper, right?
A grant proposal is like a term paper, squared. Why? Because there's money on the line. Because many other people depend on the results. Because some proposals are fairly public--with your name on them. And because you're usually proposing to DO something to which you are committed, and it won't happen without this grant. That's why you want it.
Unlike term papers, a grant proposal is PASS/FAIL. You get the grant, or you don't. (There's no useful way to label a partial grant as a B, or C. Stick with the PASS/FAIL view.)
And unlike term papers, you may wait a long time for that result. Three to six months is not unusual. Some take more than twelve months.
If you want to get the grant, support your people, and then DO the thing you proposed, you will need a grant proposal that ROCKS. Mr. Barbato shows you how.
It worked for me. More than once. Best of luck in your quest.
