The Grant Writing Process
While the grant application processes of some funding organisations are relatively simple, others may have a much longer and more complicated procedure. In order to get the most funding for your business or non for profit organisation, it’s important to follow the right steps and thoroughly complete all the required application documents. In order to make an even better impression on those who review your grant applications, hiring a writer with specific experience in grant writing will help your application immensely. By following the steps below, Wright Business Development ensures that you are only applying for the right grants and have the best chance of receiving the grant money.
1. Search for Grants That Fit Your Organisation
The first obvious step in the grant application process is locating grants for which you want to apply. We have an extensive database from which we can start to locate potential grants.
2. Review the Requirements for the Grant
Once we have compiled a list of grants for which we think you should apply, it’s time to give each of those opportunities a closer review. The grants offered by some funding organisations may be wide open, available to any business or non for profit — but others have more stringent requirements for organisations that qualify. To ensure that you’re not wasting time applying for grants that aren’t a fit, we will carefully review the grant information to make sure you actually qualify.
3. Write a Tailored Application for Each Grant
Much like applying for a job, each grant opportunity worth applying for deserves a customised application that is written precisely for that grant. When you take the time to address each grant individually rather than trying to fit a single application to every grant, the application you submit will be a much better fit for each grant, giving you a better chance of being the chosen recipient.
4. Review the Application Requirements and Your Application, Then Submit
Before we actually send off your application for any grant we give the entire application a final review, making sure that all of the requirements are met and that the written content of your application is not only complete but without error. Finally, we submit your application ensuring that the required submission process is followed and includes all the required materials.
