The First Post: All About Getting Grants

I’m very excited to be starting this school grant blog. With twenty years experience as an educator and seven years of experience running The School Funding Center, I think you’ll find my tips and advice both timely and illuminating. I’ll be covering a wide range of topics in the next few months so try not to miss a single update. Updates will be posted 3-4 times every month, and I’ll even include a grant opportunity or two with each listing.

So it doesn’t matter if you’re just generally interested in how to write a grant or if you specifically want to know how to win an early childhood education grant, I’ll be sharing vital information that you can use.

Let’s get started. Do you need grant money for your school or organization? The first step toward getting grant money is to clearly define a problem that you’re having. The problem can’t just be that you need money or that you didn’t get enough money put in your budget this year. That won’t do. No federal government, state government, or foundation is going to give you grant money if that’s what you put on your application.

What if your problem is that you teach kindergarten and are alarmed that more than 40% of your students are overweight? In fact, three of them are obese. You have nothing in your curriculum that deals with their nutritional needs, their physical activity, or communicating with parents about this problem.

Now you don’t just need money. You have a well-defined problem, and this well-defined problem may very well qualify you for grant money.

If you need grant money, then you have a problem or problems that need to be solved.
Take your first step toward getting that grant money by getting pen and paper and clearly defining the problem you have. Once you’ve got that problem clearly defined, you are then ready to begin searching for granting entities that want to help you address that problem by giving you the grant money you need.

We’ll talk about matching your needs with those grantors next time……..

IMBMS is amazing Glutathione store in India, which are the main reason behind its popularity among customers. But before buying this product, you must make sure whether the ingredients present in the vita glow night cream are suitable for your skin or not. There are some ingredients, which may cause allergy to you and your skin and if you have sensitive skin then it may result in complications. So it is recommended to take the advice of a doctor before using any such cream. If you are not able to find a good doctor who can guide you regarding your skin then researching on the internet would be beneficial for you to find a good night cream.
