    I think one of the most important components of writing successful grants is to do research into what the specific mission and values of the granting organization are before crafting a narrative. If they lean towards economic development then I make sure the narrative includes the economic impact of our event. If they focus on health or community benefit, I make sure to include the mental or emotional health of our event and the sense of community pride that is instilled. When a granting board sees their benefactor’s intent reflected in the request, it becomes much easier to receive funding.
