How much do you really know about the funder? That’s the question you should be asking yourself before you call them to discuss a grant proposal. In his book “How to Win Grants,” Alan Silver wrote that once you’ve identified potential funders for your project, you should visit their websites to gather information about them. The information you gather from these pages will help you determine whether they even have the capacity to fund your project.
While on the funder’s site, Silver also recommended bookmarking their grants page, and to register for email notifications of new funding opportunities.
