Step 5

Do What the  funder Says

Most importantly, request a copy of the grant guidelines. Follow the requirements of the funding notice or application to the letter, advises Porter. Your guide for what to include or not to include in your document is the request for proposal or grant application. “Give the funder exactly what they ask for, no more and no less,” adds Porter. “If it says give a brief statement, you write a paragraph. If is says give us two to four pages that is what you will provide”—not one page or four and a half pages, he explains.
