Some grant professionals succeed while others do not. Why?

Often, it’s because their proposals demonstrate “grant readiness.” Grant readiness turns a nonprofit’s leadership structure and organizational systems into all-new power to win federal awards.  It is an approach that arms your grant writer not just with technical expertise, but with vision, guidance and persuasive details gathered from across the entire organization.

A grant-ready proposal presents a clear and compelling picture of more than what you will do: it also clears away the competition by also demonstrating capacity and capability to deliver what you propose. Here is how to give your next proposal this winning edge.
