More about Grant Writing: Essential Information

Nonprofit organizations have distinct purposes and operate independently from the government. They support numerous and diverse causes, from the environment to human rights. Grant writers use their skills to secure funding for these causes. These professionals typically have a bachelor's degree in communications or a similar field.

Job Description

Grant writing can be a fast-paced profession. Grant writers may work on several projects at once under tight deadlines. Government policies and online submission processes change frequently. The availability of funding also fluctuates, so grant writers must develop a diversified network of funding organizations.

Nonprofit Grant Writer Job Duties

Nonprofit grant writers prepare grant proposals, beginning by performing research. To develop their proposals, grant writers familiarize themselves with an organization's programs, goals and financial needs. They also look into potential funding sources. After compiling all the information they need, grant writers compose and send their proposals.

Grant writers must also keep careful records to track their proposals. If a grant-making organization requests additional information, nonprofit grant writers supply the missing items. In some nonprofits, grant writers have additional duties, which may include managing volunteers, working with an executive board, planning fund-raising campaigns and promoting the organization through public relations work.

Nonprofit Grant Writer Requirements Educational Requirements

Nonprofit grant writers may have a bachelor's degree in communications, English, professional writing or a similar major. Outstanding grammar and research skills are essential for grant writers. Grant writers who want to work for a specific type of nonprofit organization, such as health care advocacy, might also have an educational background relevant to that field.
