Grant writing. Those two words are enough to stop anyone in their tracks. That is mainly because grants in general can be difficult to identify. Once located, the grant writing process is oftentimes extremely tedious due to a lack of knowledge about navigating the complicated path to submit successful applications.
Those sighs of dread can now be alleviated as GrantWatch.com is here to help.
GrantWatch.com is a company aimed at connecting people with a broad range of grants, from nonprofits, governmental agencies, businesses, and individuals. It is also a way for grant providers to showcase available grants in a “one-stop shop” format.
“GrantWatch.com’s expansive database puts members seeking grants and those providing grants on a common path,” GrantWatch.com founder, president, and CEO Libby Hikind said. “We simplify the process for everyone involved with grants.”
Here’s how it works:
For an annual fee of $199, those seeking grants have unlimited access to GrantWatch.com’s unique database. Members can search grant information from local, state, federal, foundation, corporation, and even international grants in more than 50 different categories. That means members may search and apply for as many grants as they desire.
Foundations, governmental agencies, and corporate members, on the other hand, may post as many grants as they choose for free. This gives those entities the opportunity to exponentially expand their base of potential grant seekers.
All grant information is updated daily, with new grants being added as well.
GrantWatch.com members will not only find potential grants through their membership, but also helpful grant writing tips to optimize their chances of being awarded the grant they seek. Additionally, an easy to use program for hiring a grant writer is a click away in case members want someone else to fill out the application for them. And GrantWatch.com offers telephone, email, and chat support for its members.
Hikind, a national grants expert, began her grant writing career while working as a teacher in the New York City Department of Education. She wrote many grants for her classroom before raising $11 million for a Brooklyn school district. Throughout her professional career she established her own grant writing agency, as well publishing a grants fax newsletter and setting up the GrantWatch.com website, when technology met the needs of the funding world. Today, more than 120,000 people visit GrantWatch.com every month.
