Plan Partnerships Now for Powerful Grant Proposals Later

October 6, 2016

Plan Partnerships Now for Powerful Grant Proposals LaterBuilding partnerships with organizations that provide similar or complementary services to your organization is an important part of grant readiness. Many funders require that grant applicants partner with other organizations or include them as subcontractors to deliver services. This is true of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant, where school districts and nonprofits are required to partner with each other to implement afterschool programs. Collaborating with other organizations on grant projects can increase your organization’s competitiveness by demonstrating a greater potential impact on a targeted community issue for less investment by the funder. Through development of a partnership, unnecessary duplication of services is avoided, administrative and overhead costs are reduced, and program design and implementation is strengthened through the inclusion of a variety of stakeholders. These are things funders love!
