Grant Writers secure funding for nonprofit organizations by researching and writing grants. They are aware of current funding trends, and familiar with a wide variety of funding sources. In order to develop successful proposals, Grant Writers must be knowledgeable about the vision, mission, goals and objectives of a program, and able to clearly communicate these in writing. After submitting a grant, Grant Writers may be a point of contact for the funding organization, answering questions or providing any other information requested. Additionally, Grant Writers track proposals, keeping detailed records of past and current submissions.
