Letter of Interest (LOI) Form

This form walks you through writing a 2-page LOI. The character counts roughly respond to the amount of space you would have to write about your work. While the balance of these sections may change, you should always lean heavier on the description of your project. TIP: Write out your sections in a word/similar document to spellcheck and edit, then add to this form when complete.
  • 2 to 3 lines of text noting that who your organization is and what you are requesting.
  • This section should include a clear statement of your mission, about a paragraph of additional values and/or vision language, and 2 to 3 paragraphs on the history of your organization. Focus on exciting highlights, the more recent, the better.
  • For a 2 page LOI, this should be the briefest of overviews of all of your programs. If you just have one program- the one which you are applying for - skip this section and just focus on your Project Description.
  • This is the meat of your proposal. Be very detailed in explaining the project for which you are applying. What is the artistic vision? Who is involved? When will it happen? Where will it happen? Do not assume the reader knows how your art form is created!
  • Spend a few sentences wrapping up this proposal. Is there something about your organizational development you want them to know? Do you want to emphasize how this program fits their mission? Make sure they know what you want and why you want it!
  • I'd love to know more about you and your work! If there's anything else you'd like to share with me as I proof your LOI draft, let me know here.

Grants Guide

For an artist focused on creation, or a small organization of overworked staff, grant writing can seem like a nuisance at best, a mysterious other language at worst. Most grants guides are thorough, but confusing and dense with information. In this short, 10 page guide, you’ll find the true basics of institutional fundraising from how to choose which grants to apply for, to how to cultivate relationships with funders, to how to write in a language that actually gets you grants. This quick read walks you through the steps without overwhelming you with unnecessary information. For the beginner just learning about grants fundraising, to the veteran who can’t understand how foundations and government funders think, this guide will help you craft a lean institutional fundraising plan that makes the most of the little time you have.
