Welcome to our 30 Day Grant Readiness Challenge!
Grant readiness in grant‐seeking organizations can be something that brings out the best of grant professional humor. When an organization is asked to consider if they are “grant ready,” the answer is usually a resounding, “Of course we are! We are ready to receive grant money!”
Joking aside, grant readiness is one of the most important factors for grant seekers to consider, relative to each and every potential application. Grant readiness comes through in all aspects of your grant seeking. It impacts how you decide what your priorities are for grant revenue and, therefore, who and what you research as part of creating a proactive grant‐seeking strategy. It impacts how you sell your organization strengths during your grant funder relationship‐building efforts. It impacts how you talk about your programs and organizational capacity during your application writing work. It can be difficult to put a clear answer to the question of whether or not an organization is grant ready, as it relies on so many variables. That is why we have started the 30 Day Grant Readiness Challenge. To help all grant seeking organizations improve their grant readiness whether their growth strategy is to get their *first* grant or to increase their award percentage for federal proposals. This challenge is for all grant seekers!
