Question Preview: Never Fail: Win or Learn

Never Fail: Win or Learn'

An average of 11% of grant applications are ‘winners’. Does that mean that grant professionals and grant seeking organizations are wasting nearly 90% of their grant seeking efforts? Our answer is a resounding ‘no’.  As grant professionals, we are continually building our skills, our knowledge base and improving our competitive edge for the grants we seek. We balance our optimism with realism. Grant professionals can take steps to make our grant development efforts and grant applications valuable, even if the grant funds are not awarded to the applicant organization (that round).

This week on Grantchat, we’re chatting about the steps to take to make sure that grant seeking organizations know how to get the value out of grant development and grant applications whether they receive the grant funds or not.
