Grant Writing - A Personal Definition of Success
for Grant Writers
  • The art of grant writing is not rocket science
    but certainly a developed skill.
  • There are many measures of success for grant
    writers and not all of the measures of success
    revolve around success in winning the funding.
  • In this article I will discuss the different
    levels of success and what a quality grant writer
    should hope to achieve after writing a grant
    submission.

Grant Writing - A Personal Definition of Success
for Grant Writers
  • Personal Satisfaction
  • One measure of success for the grant writer is
    personal satisfaction. This might seem strange
    but a grant writer or a quality grant writer at
    that should know if the grant submission they
    have just prepared is a quality job they can be
    proud of.
  • Every job a grant writer prepares obviously
    should be a quality job and a driven grant writer
    will ensure they write submissions of the highest
    quality every time and take pride in their skill
    and professionalism.
  • So personal satisfaction for a job well done
    should be a key driver for grant writers who want
    to succeed in the grant writing world.

  • Quality Document
  • Another measure of success and satisfaction
    should be the production of a quality document as
    we touched on above.
  • Many grant submissions require detailed and
    complex responses and this requires the grant
    writer to think outside the box, think
    strategically and to craft responses that address
    every bit of every question or every criteria.

  • Quality Document
  • Being a great wordsmith will help but there are
    many great wordsmiths who dont have an
    attention to detail and dont fully understand
    how to write grant submissions which will be
    successful in attracting funding.
  • A grant writer who produces high quality
    documents will obviously be successful in winning
    funding more often than not and they will take
    pride in the quality and content of their work.

  • Satisfied client/organization
  • A successful grant writer will achieve
    satisfaction if the organization they are writing
    for or the client is happy with the quality of
    work prepared.
  • To me this is vitally important in my business
    we must meet or exceed the clients expectations.
    If the client thinks gee I could have written
    that myself I need to be asking my Consultants
    how/why? There is no way any of our clients no
    matter how experienced they are in the grant
    writing world should be able to write as well as
    us, be as strategic as us and be as focused on
    attention to detail as we are.

  • Satisfied client/organization
  • I want our clients to be wowed by what we do and
    think gee there is no way I could have written or
    prepared that!
  • So yes a happy client or organization that loves
    the work you have completed is very satisfying
    and gives the grant writer a very warm feeling
    indeed.

  • Funding approved
  • Obviously the ultimate satisfaction is the
    success of the grant submission in winning
    funding. Eventually success will be measured on
    results.
  • So grant writing comes down to dollars and cents
    is the cost of chasing grants relative to the
    results and does the organization achieve a great
    return on investment with successful grants.
  • The sad reality though is that great grant
    submissions, great projects and great
    organizations can miss out on funding through no
    fault of the quality of the submission however if
    you have a quality grant writer eventually this
    quality.
