2. Writing Effective Grant Proposals :  Start Now To Learn Writing Effective Grant Proposals

Grant administrators tell us that many grant requestors have no real understanding of the proposal writing process and as a result, their worthy causes lose out. 

If you learn how to avoid the errors that lead to the rejection of your proposal, you will be better prepared to help the causes you most admire. This course will walk you through all of the essential steps--including an important discussion of what you must do when the grant arrives!

In this course, you'll learn how to become fully familiar with the institution or project for which you are requesting support. You'll get valuable guidance in preparing a background statement and a brief financial statement to support your request. You'll also research some charitable foundation and corporate giving sources.

Course 1 - Certificate in The Advanced Grant Proposal Writing Online Course

Types of Proposal Formats

In this lesson, you'll learn the different types of grant proposal formats for corporations, foundations, and state and federal government agencies. This lesson is important because you'll discover who reviews your proposals at each type of funder, what format the proposal review staff expect to receive, and how and why decisions to fund or reject grant proposals are made.

Match Funders With Projects

This lesson will teach you how to carefully research the funding agencies so you can match your grant funding needs to their interests. You’ll learn how to find and use Internet research sites to identify multiple funders for grant proposal projects. And you'll learn how to spot the funder/project matches that result in a 90 percent or higher funding success rate.

Write the History and Major Accomplishments Sections

In this lesson, we'll focus on how to prepare the first section of the grant proposal narrative-the research and major accomplishments section. You’ll learn how to sift through organizational documents and write useful information that will answer the dozens of questions that grant reviewers ask when reading your narrative. Most importantly, you'll learn how to avoid the mistakes that can cause your grant proposal to lose points during the initial stages of the funder’s review process.

Write the Current Programs and Activities Section

This lesson will teach you how to develop a current programs and activities section narrative template. You’ll also learn where to find the type of information a grant reviewer needs in this section of your grant proposal. And you'll learn how to stay on your toes to answer all of the questions that funders ask when they read this section of your grant proposals.

Write the Target Population Served Section

In this lesson, you will learn how to write accurate and magnetizing copy for the target population served section of your grant proposals. You’ll also learn how to conduct extensive research on your target population and how to order, organize, and write the information for this critical section of your grant proposals.

Write the Partnerships Section

This lesson will teach you how to find the most current information on your organization’s partners in the community, region, and nation. You’ll also learn how to identify potential partners when your organization has few or no partners. Most importantly, you'll learn how to organize and present your partnership information in an appealing format for funders.

Write the Needs Statement Section

In this lesson, you'll learn how to understand the needs statement section from the funder’s viewpoint. You'll also learn the type of information to collect on the target population and your organization in order to glean language for this section.

Write the Program Design Section

This is perhaps the most important of all our lessons. You are halfway through the main writing sections for your grant proposal narrative and gaining more confidence in your skills. This lesson will teach you how to show the funder that you have a well-thought-out plan for spending grant monies. You'll learn how to look at the program design section from the funder’s viewpoint, how to collect the right information, and how to spot poorly written narrative in this section.

Write the Management Plan Section

In this lesson, you will learn to understand the thinking patterns of grant funders when they read the management plan section. You’ll also learn how to avoid the most common types of errors made by other grant writers when writing this section, and how to cull the right information from your program staff or administrators.

Write the Evaluation Section

This lesson will teach you how to look at the evaluation plan section from the funder's perspective. You'll also learn how to steer clear of the age-old errors that other grant writers make when planning and writing this section. From learning where to find the information needed to write an award-winning evaluation plan to learning the common terms that funders look for in this section, Lesson 10 hits the target.

Develop the Budget Section

At this point, you're nearing the finish line for Advanced Proposal Writing. In this lesson, you will learn the standard definitions you need to know when it comes to planning your budget line items. We'll also look at examples of award-winning budget sections on the Internet. Most importantly, this lesson will teach you how to recover with the funder when you make a glaring budget error.

Apply Finishing Touches and Conduct Follow-up Tasks

Our last lesson will teach you how to view your entire proposal package from the funder's viewpoint. You’ll also learn how to use words that work, some final formatting techniques, and how to prepare the supporting documentation for your grant proposal-the attachments. This final lesson will also teach you the ins and outs of signatories, copies, and how to mail your grant proposal the right way. Lastly, you'll learn how to follow up on all outstanding items, such as verification of proposal delivery and checking back with funders. Finally, I'll show you the next step to take when your proposal is either funded or rejected.

Course 2 - Certificate in Writing Effective Grant Proposals Online Course

The Writing Style You'll Need for Your Grant Proposal
There’s nothing magical about preparing a grant request, but in this lesson, you’ll learn some easy and fun tricks of trade that will help you with all sorts of writing projects, even those beyond grant proposals. And you’ll learn special ways to practice these tricks!

Thinking About Your Institution the Way Grantors Do
Those of us who work for causes we think are important care about them in a very special way, usually a rather subjective one. But grantors who deal with literally thousands of institutions and causes have a rather different way of thinking about them. In this lesson, you’ll put yourself in their shoes. And in the process, you’ll learn a great way to describe your own cause to anyone.

Information You'll Need for Your Grant Proposal
Now that you’ve tried on your grantor’s shoes, let's talk about why those grantors look for certain kinds of information and documents. You’ll learn what these documents are so you can dig them out and be ready to supply them when you prepare a grant request. 

Special Characteristics of Non-Profit Organizations
There are lots of interesting things to know about each individual nonprofit organization, but all nonprofits share one thing: They're not in it to for the money! We all know that you can measure a good business by its bottom line—whether it makes money or not. But how do you measure the effectiveness of a nonprofit that needs money? In this lesson, we’ll start to look into it.

Finding Funding Sources—Foundations
The hunt for funding sources is the eternal game of hide and seek that we all play in this business. How do you find sources that might be appropriate for you? It’s a game that we can play in a library or on the Web, but the Web makes it easiest! This lesson will point you toward the most effective research tools available. 

Finding Out About Your Foundation Prospects
Once you find some foundations that you think might be a good fit for your cause, how do you choose among a field that might include hundreds? In this lesson, we’ll discuss ways to sift through these foundations, and in the course of this process, we may unearth sources you haven’t even considered!

Finding Out About Your Corporate Prospects
You've looked at all the possible charitable foundations that fit your cause, but don't stop there. What about the corporate world? Corporations have foundations, but they also have other ways of giving. We’ll talk about packaging your projects for corporations, then we’ll decide when to ask the corporate foundation and when to approach them in another way.

Doing the Numbers
For those of you who are word people, you’ll learn another way to tell your story—let the numbers do the talking! People reviewing your proposals will attach great importance to numbers, so you can’t get away with simply describing a project with words. In this lesson, we’ll discuss ways of preparing numbers effectively. It’s not hard to do, and it’s essential to the success of your proposal.

Assembling Your Proposal
By the time you reach this lesson, you’ll have all the pieces you need for your proposal. Here we’ll fine-tune what you have. Then we’ll put them all together and add the finishing touches so you can finally put a complete proposal in the mail. 

So You Don't Get a Gift—What Now?
Everyone knows that you can’t win ‘em all! But when you do get a turndown, there are positive alternatives to doom and gloom. The suggestions in this lesson will help you deal with those inevitable turndowns.

So You Get a Gift—What Now?
Okay, just as you hoped—you did get a gift! There’s an old saying in this business: Every gift paves the way to the next. In this lesson, we'll make sure you know just how to pave that road! 

Some Thoughts About Writing Grant Proposals to Individuals
Now that you have all the elements you need for your proposal, can you also send it to an individual? Well, not really—at least not the whole thing. You need to think about what would interest those individuals and how you can best present it to them. That’s what we'll cover in the final lesson of this course. I think you’ll enjoy it and I know you’ll find it useful!

Corporations have foundations, but they also have other ways of giving. We’ll talk about packaging your projects for corporations, then we’ll decide when to ask the corporate foundation and when to approach them in another way.

Doing the Numbers
For those of you who are word people, you’ll learn another way to tell your story—let the numbers do the talking! People reviewing your proposals will attach great importance to numbers, so you can’t get away with simply describing a project with words. In this lesson, we’ll discuss ways of preparing numbers effectively. It’s not hard to do, and it’s essential to the success of your proposal.

Assembling Your Proposal
By the time you reach this lesson, you’ll have all the pieces you need for your proposal. Here we’ll fine-tune what you have. Then we’ll put them all together and add the finishing touches so you can finally put a complete proposal in the mail. 

So You Don't Get a Gift—What Now?
Everyone knows that you can’t win ‘em all! But when you do get a turndown, there are positive alternatives to doom and gloom. The suggestions in this lesson will help you deal with those inevitable turndowns.

So You Get a Gift—What Now?
Okay, just as you hoped—you did get a gift! There’s an old saying in this business: Every gift paves the way to the next. In this lesson, we'll make sure you know just how to pave that road! 

Some Thoughts About Writing Grant Proposals to Individuals
Now that you have all the elements you need for your proposal, can you also send it to an individual? Well, not really—at least not the whole thing. You need to think about what would interest those individuals and how you can best present it to them. That’s what we'll cover in the final lesson of this course. I think you’ll enjoy it and I know you’ll find it useful!
