And, if you're like most people with a conscience right now, your heart vacillates between your commitment to love being presenced in the world and despair and rage with the current state of global affairs.
I know that you appreciate that we’ve been freely gifted a bountiful earth for us to enjoy and know there simply must be kinder and gentler ways for us to distribute the bounty so that everyone thrives.
In an ideal world, good-hearted, hard-working people like you and I wouldn’t have to spend hours writing grant proposals to compete for limited money from the government and foundations for programs that provide basic necessities to people who need them, or to protect the planet from wanton destruction and depletion of its resources by corporations.
But, for now, the world is what it is.
I'd love to be like the guy on late night TV with the dollar signs on his jacket raving about how much money is out there and all you have do is apply. Or to teach a 1 or 2 day class and send you on your way knowing that you'll do fine.
But, I'd be pumping you with falsehoods and not giving you the skills that you need. And it would leave you prey to feeling like you're doing something wrong.
Grant writing is not difficult but it is super competitive and so you do have to know how it works and be really strategic in how you spend your time.
You have a good heart and I want you to thrive.
So, the best that I can do is share my decades of grant writing experience to help you be more effective in getting more money for your organization for years to come.
