Hi, I'm Laura from, and I'm going to talk about how to write a grant for charity. One thing to keep in mind is that all grants... almost all grants... are made to 501C3 organizations, and that is someone who has been determined by the IRS to be a nonprofit organization. So, in general, if you're writing a grant it's for an organization that does charitable work or work that's not for profit. If you are looking for someone to write a grant for, if you'd like to help a charitable organization and you're wanting to learn to write a grant, one good thing you could do is to take a grant writing course. There are some really good organizations that offer online grant writing courses. The Foundation Center is a great organization and it offers... has in person workshops that are available but also online courses. So that's a great way to get started if you're wanting to write a grant for a charity of your choice. Most nonprofit organizations or charities are always looking for someone to help them with fundraising. It's a really big need for most organizations because they have so many responsibilities and fundraising is a constant need, and one that just sometimes falls a little bit lower on the list because they're trying to help other people. So, I highly recommend that as a great way to help an organization that you care about. So get a book or take a course on how to write a grant, and follow those guidelines that are coming from the funder, and be sure to submit a really polished grant. But do get some resources if you're hoping to help write a grant for charity.
