What Are Grants?
(And what they're not).
- •Grants are a Call to ActionYour organization works together with a foundation or the government to solve a problem or issue and the grant funds are a means to aid in that endeavor.
- •GRANTS ARE NOT FREE $$$Don't think of grants as free money that you can use however you want once you get the award. The money is used for a specific project or for overhead costs.
- •Your Grant Proposal is a Logical Argument for SupportWhen you write a proposal you're asking the funder to partner with you to accomplish a goal.
- •Grants = Social Change!If you get the funding, the foundation or government is saying they believe in you and want to partner together to create that change!
- •Together You're Both Smashing Your MissionWhen your mission aligns with your funder, you're both winning big time!!!
