“Know your audience” is a basic tenant of all good writing. In writing grant proposals, it’s critical.

That’s because private family foundations, corporations and government entities aren’t the same. Reviewers are motivated by different factors. Some prefer a great deal of evidence presented in the statement of need, while others care more about the evaluation plan.  Take a cookie-cutter approach and your reviewer won’t make it to the end of your proposal, much less award you a high point score.

Now, one of America’s leading grant writers shows you the secret for engaging the specific type of reviewer who will evaluate your capacity, credibility, evidence and sustainability.
