Grant Writers Must Be Content Experts.

I’m conducting Funder Prospect Research in a sector new to me, and it’s fascinating! I’m learning about a different part of the world, and the challenges that people face there. Grant writing demands that you become a “content expert,” and the opportunity for personal and professional growth that the work gives you — as part of the job — is what I love most about it.

Grant writing offers me a continual feed of new people, places, facts, technology, ideas, and ways of doing things. It’s never the same-old, same-old. Learning, growing, and adjusting, is what I do all day, I am thankful to say! You have to be constantly curious, I believe, or you will just shrivel up and die.
