Every grant writer tries to sell their organization’s mission, approach, and results to a new or existing funder. Using simple, straightforward language to make your point, demonstrate effective team leadership, and share program results is necessary but can be boring. How can you create an exciting grant proposal that stands out from all the others using the same approach? Adding photos, videos, and stories helps your readers visualize your impact, the community you serve, and how you are changing lives. Learn how to give your proposal (and your organization) the personal touch and genuineness it deserves.
