Sorry everyone; I have another 2 hour Zoom call starting in 15 minutes and need to take a quick break for lunch before then. Thanks so much Barb this has been really useful.
Sadly I have to head out a little early. Thank you for all of the great information Barbara!
I've got a huge word document with language used over the years across the organization which answers different common questions. I adapt this and change it up on a regular basis
For summer youth grants, I save job descriptions to copy to the app each year
know my keywords
Still working on the struggle but have put to gether a grant team of volunteers that are working together. We are greeting program outlines so it has all the wording in place.
Thanks Barb for an excellent presentation! Have another meeting to attend. Take care all.
We use all our office on One Drive it's great.
Yes, I was going to add google docs system and teamwork system like Trello to track progress, follow-up.
Are there ppl willing to look over grant proposals to give feedback, paid or unpaid?
I'd like to ask a question about grants for ongoing programs.
How valuable is putting in cash into grant apps vs in-kind
Are letters of support useful even if not asked for?
Thank you, Elaine!
as a person who has reviewed many grant applications I strongly advise not stating the obvious and being wordy. Concise gets points!!
Thanks, very helpful info here!
Your annual report can tell those stories if you can submit it.
