Some Thoughts on Grant Funding
Grant funds are best used to fund
new initiatives or expand programs or projects - always within the
context of the organization's mission or strategic plan.
Grant funds are only part of fund
development in organization. The largest percentage of philanthropic
dollars still comes from individuals and can be less restrictive.
Grantors fund outcomes in areas
they are interested in and will pay for personnel, equipment, buildings,
supplies, etc. to help you achieve these outcomes.
Grant funds are highly competitive
and may have a long decision-making timeline.
