proposal for support as a planning tool
Once a good lead has been identified, the preparation of a proposal for support can be used to organize your grants program. As each question is addressed, we learn more about how best to frame your mission and goals to appeal to potential funding partners. We uncover basic areas for improvement such as avoiding the use of acronyms. Larger issues may come to the forefront as well. Perhaps your program budget doesn’t include all of your costs, or you need more measurable outcomes. Using an application for support to identify areas of improvement accomplishes a number of important goals and has the added benefit of possibly bringing in new funds.
