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 an 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.
