Overview

The Support Centers of America (SGA) has created the definitive self-help workbook that is a practical guide to writing persuasive and professional grant proposals. Winning Grants Step by Step can help your organization succeed in the highly competitive arena of winning grants from both the government and private foundations. In easy-to-understand terms, the workbook leads you to create a proposal—from start to finish—that fulfills the three most important criteria grantmakers demand from a successful proposal: a clearly stated purpose of what your organization is trying to achieve, compelling evidence that demonstrates the importance of that need, and a well-reasoned plan that outlines how your organization will meet this need in a cost-effective manner. And, once the workbook exercises are completed, your organization will have a fully developed grant proposal.Written for both novice and experienced grantwriters, the workbook, rigorously field-tested by SCA, is filled with practical advice and illustrative examples including important information on:* Determining if your program or project idea is fundable.* Clear samples that make it easier to create a well-written letter of intent.* How to do the necessary research to find the right funder to approach.*Targeting your proposal to meet the priorities of the funder.* What happens to your proposal once it reaches the funder.* Adapting this program- and project- specific funding approach to assist in general funding.If your organization needs just a thousand or several million dollars, following the step-by-step process presented in the workbook will improve your ability to transform an idea that needs funds into a proposal that deserves to be funded.
