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.
