Applying for a grant is not easy task and requires more preparation than just writing a narrative.
Sarah S. Brophy outlines the steps that must be taken before applying for grants with an easy-to-use checklist that guides grant-writing preparation.
This leaflet outlines what granting foundations find attractive and how to prepare for a grant application, from matching your institution with the right funders to determining what sets apart your organization from other applicants.
Brophy explains what aspects of an organization funders will examine -organizational mission, location and audience, impact/effect, quality, and edge.
She also provides tips for demonstrating the match between funders and deserving organizations.
