Secrets of Compelling Grant Writing That Gets Funded with Rachel Waterman
Requesting grant dollars can be quite intimidating, especially when you’re new to the grant seeking process. When it comes to nonprofit grant writing, there’s not a formulaic approach or “one-size-fits-all”. Rather, you need to customize your approach for each funder you pursue.
Rachel Waterman is here to help! Rachel is the CEO and Founder of GDS Grants. She is a GPA approved trainer and presenter on various topics related to grant writing, research & management, but her favorite "things" are data collection/outcome measures and systems for scale and efficiency. She helped develop the grant management software GEMS Grant Easy Management Software.
In this episode, you’ll learn Rachel’s best tips to:
- Best identify which funders to pursue
- Determine what to include in your grant proposal - and what you can leave out
- Persuade funders that you are worthy of a grant
- Manage grant-writing with the other responsibilities on your plate
