OK, there are many ways to write these things. I have read about ten thousand of them in my day. Foundations like mine are all a little different. Requirments differ depending on who you deal with. I like to see proposals that are simple. If I need more info I ask for it. In this case I have a good understanding of how the grant will be used, and who I am dealing with. So in the intrest of keeping things simple here it is.
1. Givr the name of the organazation
2. The request. NJBMX requests the amount of 5000 dollars for the purposes of equipment purcheses and marketting materal.
3. A detalied itemized list of all the purchases.
4. Outline of the purpose of the grant. How the money will be used.
5. Breif history of the orgazation
6. Closing statement.
The name of my foundation is The Tina and Richard V Carolan Foundation Inc.

I didn’t want to comment on that, I thought possibly you were dictating to your daughter, then I realized she probably spells betterDecember 12, 2006 at 11:57 pm #37881
Bill, good just like that. Put that on official NJBMX letter head and give it to me. Wow we have to write the proposal for them, is there anything they can do? Just kidding, but this same kind of proposal can be used to solicit other foundations. I will elaborate on that later.

Unfortunately, I think we willl have to make up some sort of letterhead, as I do not think they have one.December 13, 2006 at 12:03 am #37883
I have emailed Lisa asking for the letter.December 13, 2006 at 12:07 am #37885
Just a point of interest, but I want to bring this up again. The grant money is nice, however, I don’t want this to be these clowns thinking that Rich, or someone can bail them out, I hope that some level of getting their house in order will come to, so as not to require another grant, loan, or soforth! Otherwise it will be like giving crack to a junkie, to appease themDecember 13, 2006 at 5:36 am #37914
Brett one more thing dont put “cost not to exceed” put the exact ammount. Because when they request 5000 dollars, the items they are going to purchase have to add up to that exact ammount. Also, they will have to account for all the expendures.
RichDecember 13, 2006 at 2:49 pm #37930
you got it Rich!December 15, 2006 at 8:26 pm #38054
