Education and Training
Grantseeker Tips is a free electronic newsletter that attempts to inform -- and motivate -- as you close the financial gap between your needs and your resources. Topics are driven by whatever is current at the moment in the world of grants. Funding programs and priorities change. Grantmaker expectations increase, particularly in terms of evaluation and accountability. New data sources for grant proposals appear and disappear. And when it comes to persuasive proposal writing strategies, one is always a lifetime learner.
