In Europe and worldwide there are a lot of foundations that provide funding for the development of various projects. Practically any company may try to obtain such financial resources in the form of a grant for the development of its activities, but requirements and procedures are different.
A successful grant proposal is one that is well-prepared, thoughtfully planned, and concisely packaged. Every NPO wishing to receive a grant shall:
- select the program correctly,
- determine project mission,
- prepare project plan and budget
- show the expected results and benefits of the project implementation.
Unfortunately, the majority of applicants do not receive grants, but not because projects are not interesting, but because applicant does not take into account all the administrative requirements of funds. If applicant does not take into account at least one requirement, his documents are not valid or project is described not sufficient and convincingly, the application will not even be considered.
