The PTSD of Nonprofit Grant Writing

What is it about the prospect of writing a grant proposal that fills us with fear and loathing?

How’s your summer going? I asked this of several friends this week. Their answer, and I’m paraphrasing — Ugh, I have to write a grant proposal.

That sinking feeling. That looming blank page. Those insurmountable college essays.

The stakes are high, the pressure is real.

Grant Proposal PTSD sets in. And we’re paralyzed. Those dreaded grant-writing blues.

Here’s the scoop. A top-notch, rock-solid, world-beating brand is the secret sauce to tackling that blank page with gusto. It’s right there — your personal grant-writing cheerleader, waiting in the wings. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel every time. Your brand narrative is the centerpiece. Everything else falls into place.

Your nonprofit’s brand is the Sherlock to your grant proposal Watson. It’s the brilliant investigator that deciphers your proposal puzzle, making your mission so crystal clear that funders can’t help but nod in agreement.

With your brand by your side, you’re not just writing a proposal; you’re crafting a compelling narrative story.

Goodbye, nerve-wracking ordeal and daunting abyss.

Hello, trusty sidekick, swooping in to save the day when grant proposal paralysis strikes.
