Grant writing and foundation proposal development varies widely depending on the purpose of the grant and the requirements established by the individual foundation.  Identifying, researching and preparing successful grant applications begins with the capacity to communicate the organizations goals and objectives to the funder in a clear and concise manner. Although often thought of as a linear process (from idea to proposal to award), it is, in fact, a circular process that incorporates cultivation, communication, conceptual flexibility, feedback and precise timing.
