Share Your Knowledge About Grant Application and Funding Here
I'm looking to discuss the grant application process, and hoping to find someone who has experience and knowledge to share. As a 501(c)3 charitable organization with a fairly broad mission, we are eligible to apply for lots of different grants from a wide range of sources, which is really exciting stuff!.......until you look at that mountain of paperwork...:( Finding these grants is not a problem whatsoever- Figuring out how to obtain some of these grants could really help us fuel our programs and events for 2011.
To no surprise, grant writing is somewhat of a specialized field, and many of them only apply for grants from certain organizations, and of course, get a lot of money for doing it. As I understand it, some work on a commission basis, meaning if they obtain the grant, they are entitled to a percentage of the grant.
I'm hoping someone on here has a bit of knowledge to share, as we are a start-up organization and looking to begin exploring this avenue of opportunity.
