- Grant Application Template & Guide- “Increasing Grant Success” E-Book:
Applying for grants can be intimidating.
This resource is designed to help you become more efficient with your time and focused on your funding needs. Getting your nonprofit’s mission, program(s), and financial narratives in one place is the best place to start. I want to make it as easy as possible for you to get more funding for your organization, so I compiled a grant application template with some of my favorite, best-practice components and common questions to address during the application process.
This template provides short sample grant applications and fill-in-the-blank prompts that are built to help you lay out your organization’s needs in a succinct way, so you can be well on your way to demonstrating your mission’s impact!
- Grants Matrix:
This is a very important tool that I have used successfully with my clients over the years. When used consistently and strategically, you should see your grant efforts increase. Remember that only funders that match your mission should be added to the matrix, and relationships are key.
Creating your own grants matrix for your organization helps you get a grasp of your funding opportunities. It helps you prioritize which are deserving of your limited resources at what time. Using this grants matrix in conjunction with a grant calendar can keep you on time, on task, and confident that no detail has been overlooked in your quest for grant funding.
Share this matrix at every board meeting and share it with key leadership, too. If anyone on your board or staff knows the funder, that’s a great way to get the door open and begin building (or strengthening) your relationships with them!
