Whether a new organization looking for seed funding, or an established organization with a history of successful fundraising, grant seeking can be a valuable resource development strategy. However, an organization that is not adequately prepared or who lacks the capacity to pursue grants can damage its reputation and ruin its chances of funding success by putting a bad taste in the mouths of potential funders. Therefore, establishing a grant seeking strategy is instrumental to increasing proposal competitiveness and ensuring an organization’s attractiveness to foundations and other grantmakers.
