Today, The Chronicle of Philanthropy posted a video titled, Foundations Reveal What They Look for in Grant Proposals. The video was taken during the Council on Foundation’s recent annual conference in Washington, D.C. It is a brief, inside perspective by grant makers representing the Walmart Foundation, Ford Foundation, Berks County Community Foundation, the Marie C. and Joseph C. Wilson Foundation, and the Minnesota Council on Foundations. The video captures “pearls of inside wisdom,” discussing the characteristics that make a grant proposal advance in the funding consideration process. The elements cited are what many foundations look for during the proposal review process.
For grant seekers who run at a frantic pace, this may be the best 1 minute, 36 seconds you’ll ever spend!
