It’s a new day at your nonprofit. As you scroll through dozens of emails, a congratulatory notice emerges. You’ve been awarded a grant! Memory of the grueling application process trickles away, and you are flooded with relief. Grant writing can be worth it!
Nonprofit Hub mentions three important reasons for grant writing:
- There’s a lot of money out there
- Grants exist for any kind of nonprofit
- You can fund any kind of need
And while grants are not your sole source of funding, and perhaps not even your main source of funding, they certainly can be a substantial reinforcement to your budget.
Diversity of Sources counts for a lot. The idea is to have several baskets of income and several grants in the works so that the loss of any one funding source will not be fatal. – The Balance
