 +there are a number of things to consider before your non profit even go after a grant. First of all, are you relying on grants to be your main source of funding? Most grant-makers don’t have a positive reaction to that, preferring instead that you can show that you have other resources to sustain your operation. Too many organizations underestimate the costs of their projects and then run into trouble when they have to look beyond grants to keep going. Also, if you are trying to satisfy various grant makers who are looking for a match between your mission and their vision and goals, you may start to modify your plans to try to appeal to the grant maker. That can detract you from your original mission — so be sure you are finding potential grantmakers whose vision is a good match for your passion and programs.
