Naming your project or program is the most important task you will face in writing an interesting grant proposal.
When you go into a bookstore, what’s the first thing that attracts you to a book?
The title. So, if you want the grant reviewer to become intrigued with your project, name it
accordingly. And make it sexy. I don’t care if it’s a Hospice agency, liven it up a bit.
This may seem a little inappropriate, but I once reviewed grants for a foundation who was funding mental health organizations.
I had to choose between these 2 agencies to receive $100,000;
The TBT Regional Manic Depressive Society
Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut, Sometimes You Don’t
Of course the nuts won! Don't take yourself, or your organization, so seriously all the time.
Nobody cares what
your organization did in 1985
