GRANT WRITING TIPS

Three ways to improve your grant proposal are:

  1. Eliminate jargon: Get rid of all internally used acronyms and jargon. Write simply and in language that everyone can understand.
  2. Tell a story: You have to get the attention of someone who has likely been reviewing grant proposals all day. Get that person’s attention with a unique narrative that makes your application stand out from the crowd.
  3. Find an objective reviewer: Send a draft of the proposal to someone who isn’t familiar with your organization. If that person can understand—and be interested in—your proposal, you’re on the right track.
