Grants Office

Proposal Preparation

You will probably be writing your proposal to either a government agency or to a private foundation or corporation. These two types of donors require very different types of proposals. Below are several sources that will give you a start on either type. In addition, the Grants Development Manager will be HAPPY TO HELP YOU DEVELOP your proposal, and will coordinate with the Budget Office to create your budget. Stop by CC107A (inside the Foundation Office), call x4408, or email the grants office for assistance.
