5.6 Writing Successful Proposals
Many excellent grantsmanship resources are available. For example, the Foundation Center provides 1-hour free training courses, online courses through its virtual classroom, a book on proposal writing, and classes in selected U.S. cities. Three online courses available from the center are “An Orientation to Grantseeking,” “Guide to Funding Research,” and “Proposal Writing Short Course.” The center also offers topical reading lists, an online bookshelf, and a glossary.
Government agencies, philanthropic organizations, and nonprofit organizations provide seminars, courses, and manuals on grantwriting. Local foundations may also sponsor courses or provide technical assistance with grantwriting.
