13.6 Grant Writing: Building Your Skills With Nonprofits (Objs. 1, 2)
Non profit organizations are always seeking grant writers, and you would like to gain experience in this area. Youâ€™ve heard that they pull down good salaries, and one day you might even decide to become a professional grant/proposal writer. However, you first need experience. You saw a Web listing from The Actors Theatre Workshop advertising for a grant writer to â€œseek funding for general operating expenses and program-related funding.â€ A grant writer would â€œdevelop proposals, generate boilerplates for future applications, and oversee a writing team.â€ This listing sounds good, but you need a local position.
