New Publication: 20 Tip Every Strategic Grant Seeker Should Know

Please excuse Cross-Posting

I've just completed a new publication designed to help grant seekers be more strategic and successful in their solicitations. It's based on over a dozen years of experience as a program director/grant maker for one of the large foundations and a couple of decades of grant seeking. Over the years I've found grant seekers often approach solicitations from their own perspective. They typically underappreciating the donor's perspective and often don't leverage this perspective to their advantage.

20 Tips Every Strategic Grant Seeker should know tries to level the playing field. It explores the key issues from a grant maker’s perspective, providing grant seekers insight into the dynamics of the donor decision making process and the reasoning behind it. Most importantly, it lays out successful strategies to leverage these dynamics. The twenty-four page guide is written in very practical terms. Each page describes a distinct donor behavior or practice, a brief description of why it occurs, its effect, and finally a strategy for the grant seeker to leverage or avoid it.

It's written for every grant seeker wanting to do a better job of translating their passion into successful grants or who have walked away from donor interactions wondering what they were thinking. Expect at least a few “A-Ha” moments as you read the tips and accumulate insight into donor behavior you may not have considered.

In the developed world it is being paired with another, discounted green tea offer to leverage and link three social responsibility objectives at once: better grant seeking knowledge, a healthier lifestyle and a reduced carbon footprint - see the website reference above for more details.
