Foundations and government agencies fulfill their missions, in part, by providing funds for specific purposes in the form of grants. Grant proposal writing is the process of applying for funding in support of a project that provides a social good. Grants may be sought to begin a new activity, to support ongoing operations, to make capital improvements, to purchase needed equipment and supplies, and for other purposes that support a project. A primary goal of grant proposal writing is the demonstration of a match between the funder's mission and the project's purpose.
