How to Create a Grant-Winning Proposal

Many schools today lack the requisite funding to implement a comprehensive technology program. Money, however, is available for educators brave enough to tackle grant proposals. Grantwriting has become one of the most important activities in public schools, with superintendents hiring their own experts specifically to write proposals for large state and federal grants. Principals, and even teachers, are strongly encouraged to seek outside funding sources. Schools have been required to look outward and forge partnerships with colleges, non-profit organizations, and businesses that will bring additional resources into the classroom...
There is no better time for writing grants than today .

For starters, go after local grantors-especially those with ties to your community. Seek out those companies that traditionally give money for community initiatives. Soft drink distributors, high-tech companies, and local PTA groups are all good places to start. If you're stuck, try the business section of the phone directory. Also consider state grants, where you will have less competition than for national grants. Your local teachers union newspaper is a very good source for small classroom grants. Internet sources are excellent as well: Teachers Network maintains an ongoing database of grant opportunities for teachers, many of which have been awarded to our members.
