Grantwriting is the practice of completing an application for funding provided by an institution such as a government department, foundation, or corporation. It’s is an important skill to have in these difficult financial times, when non-profits and other charitable institutions require so much financial assistance in order to help those in need.

With your grantwriting skills, you can help organizations that in turn help people in dire financial straits.
