Health 4 Humanity, Inc., a scientific research organization and H-1B Cap-Exempt employer, offers supervised structured and guided work-based training to improve an executive trainee's knowledge of U.S. business techniques, methodologies, and technology. We are inviting grant writing trainees/volunteers to assist the organization.
Grant writers typically do the following:
Researching grants. To find available funding, grant writers identify grants that match the objective of the organization or individual seeking money. They often scour detailed lists, databases, and donor websites.
Part of researching grants is determining which ones are not worth pursuing. "In my program, we research a lot of opportunities that come our way," Shelia says. "Some work for us, and some are not a fit for who we are and what we do.
Writing proposals. Grant proposals often require a variety of documents, such as a cover letter, project narrative, and supporting information, which might include things like letters of endorsement from members of the community. Through these documents, grant writers explain why a cause is important and how the funds will be used.
For example, grant writers might describe the past, present, and planned activities of the grant-seeking individual or organization. In drafting the proposal, writers must follow the grant’s guidelines, such as ensuring that the organization meets eligibility requirements, and provide a budget that outlines how the grant money would be spent.
Incorporating all of these elements into a successful proposal takes time and expertise-especially when there are hundreds, sometimes thousands, of organizations competing for the same funds. "Your writing needs to convince funders that your organization is profoundly worthy of their trust and support," says Shelia.
Other tasks. Grant writers’ other tasks may include responding to funders’ questions about a proposal, developing relationships with prospective donors, and documenting a grant’s impact at the conclusion of a project.
