Central online library of successful grant applications?

The idea of collecting examples of successful grant applications is not new. The concept often arises at conferences and training days, and a number of UK organisations have considered developing such a resource. As yet, however, nothing has appeared.

The idea of collecting examples of successful grant applications is not new. The concept often arises at conferences and training days, and a number of UK organisations have considered developing such a resource. As yet, however, nothing has appeared.

The idea has been suggested today by Action Without Borders in their monthly newsletter Ideas in Action. Russ Finkelstein writes: “many organizations, especially smaller and younger ones, have no way of knowing what potential funders *really* want to see in a proposal. What does a great proposal or letter of inquiry really look like? Why did it get funded? How did the process work?

“In talking about this with people in several organisations, it occurred to us that it would be very helpful to put together an online library of successful grant proposals and letters of inquiry.”
