All I see are grants


So we've been working on a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for a digitization project in cooperation with the Spokane library's Northwest Room (which houses local history). Its enough to make your head spin. Our deadline is tuesday so its crunch time.

In the mentime I've been working on a current project to go to small museums in our area to help them digitize their collections which is funded by a grat from Humanities Washington.

I'm getting a real crash course in the world of grant writing, and am just trying to hold my own.
Next project another grant from NEH for a teacher's workshop.

Keep your fingers crossed for grants :-)

Grant writing is always fun :-) My favorite book on grant writing is "The Only Grantwriting Book You'll Ever Need" by Ellen Karsh and Arlen Sue Fox.

Of course, the easiest grant writing is when you already have a clearly articulated program or project with all the needs, goals, objectives, metrics, and outcomes already defined. Then all you really have to do is slap a "gimme" to it and send it out the door. Very rarely though does one seem to have all that :-)

Best of luck with the fundraising!
