Hi, I'm Laura from, and I'd like to talk about how to write a faith based grant. There are certain organizations... the federal government has some specific faith based organization funding, and then there are foundations--community foundations or just general foundations--that offer specific grants for faith based organizations. You want to follow the format that the funder has provided. They're usually very specific about which sections they want to see... a needs section, a projects description... they may ask for key personnel descriptions and a budget. You also need to be aware that there are some organizations that don't fund faith based organizations. So again, read the guidelines very carefully. Make sure that you're not applying for a funder that is specifically not going to fund your type of organization. Be sure to include specific details about what your project hopes to achieve, and be specific in your budget about how the money will be spent. Being as much specific detail as you can use really reassures funders that you are professional and that you know exactly what you're doing and you'll be able to hit the ground running when you do receive the funding. So those are some things to keep in mind when writing a faith based grant.
