In Foundation Directory Online you may have seen the words, “Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers' Common Grant Application Format accepted.”
What is a Common Grant Application?
Common Grant Applications are basic templates adopted by groups of grantmakers which allow grant applicants to produce a single proposal for a specific community of funders.
Here in DC, the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers (WRAG) has developed a standard proposal application that has been adopted and is accepted by many area funders.
On Monday, February 2 we will be hosting a special program entitled: How to Improve Washington Regional Association Common Grant Application Submissions. We will be joined by Miyesha Perry, Manager of Grants & Administration at the Morris & Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation. This session is geared toward nonprofit organizations using or about to apply to a grantmaker requiring the Common Grant application. Special attention will be given to the budget/financial section.
This is one of the most important programs we will be hosting this year, so please join us! You can register online.
Reminder: Before you apply to a funder that accepts a Common Grant Application form, be sure to check that your project matches the funder's stated interests. You should also determine whether the funder would prefer a letter of inquiry in advance of receiving your proposal.
See you on February 2!
