If you're serious about learning to write grants, you won't find a better resource than the Let's Write a Grant CD that was created by and is marketed and sold by Donna Fernandez, the list owner/manager for our Bring Home the Bacon listserve.. I've been to numerous workshops (some VERY expensive), classes and conference presentations (and done a few of my own) on grant development/grant writing and honestly, none were any better than what you'll get from Donna's CD and many pale in comparison.. And the best part? The Let's Write a Grant CD only costs $55 (includes shipping).. That's an unbelievable value.. Your district should be willing to purchase this resource, but if it's not, it's worth paying for out of your own pocket.. It's the best $55 a school grant writer can spend.. By the way, this is a great resource even if you're an experienced grant writer.. I'd recommend it to every list member.. If you want an even better bargain, you can also subscribe to Donna's SchoolGrants Biweekly Newsletter (normally $45/year) but available as a package with the Let's Write a Grant CD for $89.. For more information, go to the School Grants website:.. http://www.. schoolgrants.. org/.. and click on the Let's Write a Grant CD or Newsletters links..

  • Title: SchoolGrants Bring Home the Bacon Listserv
    Descriptive info: Bring Home the Bacon Listserv.. Join your colleagues in grant-related discussions!.. If you would like to join in discussions with other educators and interested community members, you are invited to join the.. SchoolGrants'.. Bring Home the Bacon (BHTB) e-mail list! All grant-related and/or fundraising for K-12 schools topics are welcome on the BHTB listserv.. Please note that as of July 1, 2006, only subscribers to the SchoolGrants Biweekly Newsletter are offered the opportunity to participate on BHTB.. Questions and Answers about the Bring Home the Bacon Email List.. Join the Bring Home the Bacon Listserv.. Other Listserv Commands.. Review our Welcome Letter.. List Guidelines.. Questions and Answers about the.. What is a listserv?.. Joining a listserv like Bring Home the Bacon allows you to communicate with other subscribers via e-mail by sending your message to one easy address.. Likewise, when other subscribers send a message to the list's e-mail address, that message goes to all subscribers.. This means that there may be days when you will get many e-mail messages if a topic of particular interest is being discussed on the list.. Is there a digest version available?.. Yes.. A digest combines all of the day's individual posts into one nightly email.. Many subscribers find this a convenient way to keep up with the list without receiving many individual posts.. A digest does delay receipt of the information posted and sometimes makes it a little more difficult to respond to threads on the list.. Bring Home the Bacon digests are available in either HTML or Text format.. I recommend the HTML version if possible.. Many people have their email clients set up to send HTML posts.. When such posts are sent to the listserv, those who receive text-formatted digests will receive many lines of HTML coding.. This can be very disconcerting and make reading the digests difficult.. If you wish to receive the digest version, please complete the.. comments form.. provide your email address, first and last name, and which version of the digest you wish to receive in the comments section of the form.. If not stated, you will be subscribed to the HTML Digest.. Please state in your email that you wish to receive the daily digest and not individual postings.. Can I advertise on the BHTB listserv?.. You may mention services you offer but the listserv is.. not.. the right place to advertise goods and services you have available for sale.. BHTB was created for educators to have a place to exchange ideas, tips, and grant and fundraising opportunities.. It is a list where colleagues can collaborate with one another as they attempt to provide supplemental programs for their K-12 students, classrooms, and districts.. There is no charge to be a member of Bring Home the Bacon listserv.. However, as of July 1, 2006, membership is available only to those who also subscribe to the..

SET BRINGHOMEBACON DIGEST.. List archives will be available to all subscribers to the list.. You can access them at.. Please take a moment to review the following list guidelines.. They have been developed over the course of time as the list has grown and as suggestions have been made by subscribers.. "Bring Home the Bacon" List Guidelines.. No question is a "dumb" or stupid one, so please - if you have a question, ask! The Bacon list has some very knowledgeable and helpful individuals on it.. The Bacon list is set up so that, when you hit "reply to sender", your response goes to the entire list.. If you wish to respond privately to a message posted to the Bacon list, you must copy and paste the email address of the person to whom you wish to respond into the "To" field of your message.. 3.. When you respond to a message on the list, please delete all but the pertinent parts of the message to which you are responding.. Extending this courtesy is especially nice for those listmembers who receive the digest version of the Bacon list.. When you leave all the footers and prior messages intact, they have to scroll through a bunch of messages they have already read.. Those who receive the digest version of the list also need to be aware and especially careful of this - please delete the digest to which you are responding or you will repost the entire thing to the list again.. It might be easiest, especially for our digest subscribers, to set up the Bacon list address (.. ) in your "Address Book" and simply begin a new message each time.. 4.. Please do not send such responses as "ok", "I agree", or "thanks" to the entire list.. This type response is more appropriately sent to the individual to whom the sentiment is directed.. 5.. On the other hand, if your response is related to grants or fund-raising or supplemental programs, please do send it to the entire list.. It is by active participation by all subscribers that we all learn and that we are most able to offer input.. 6.. If you wish to unsubscribe from the list or have complaints about the way the list is being run, you should not send those messages to the entire subscriber base.. The list members cannot help you with administrative issues.. You can unsubscribe yourself from the list by.. Simply hit send on the blank email message.. Subscribe and unsubscribe instructions are at the bottom of every post sent to BHTB.. 7.. When posting questions to the list, it is helpful if you tell us where you are located, a little about your project, how much funding you desire, when you'd like to begin your project, etc.. The more information you can give us, the more likely it is that we will be able to offer suggestions.. 8.. The Bacon list is currently semi-moderated.. Only posts that are on-topic - related to projects / programs / grants / K-12 education are approved to go to the entire list.. 9.. Make sure your virus protection program is up to date.. The WScript.. KakWorm has been making the rounds on email lists lately.. This particular virus affects only Outlook Express 5, from what I understand.. A clean-up program for the KAK virus is located at:.. pchell.. com/internet/kakworm.. shtml.. From this site, you can also get a patch from Microsoft that will make your machine invulnerable to the worm.. Still, if you are participating on e-mail lists, it is important to have up-to-date virus protection software on your computer! [Threat of virus infection is greatly reduced on the Bacon list due to the fact that it does not accept attachments.. We're looking forward to the sharing of successes, tips, suggestions, grant opportunities.. if it is grant-related, it is appropriate for posting on this list! Your questions are also welcome here, and the task of answering questions belongs to us all..

Through the Eyes of the Grant Reviewer.. Links to Grant Writing Hints and Tips on Other Sites.. Tips on Hiring Grant Writing Consultants.. The most important thing for grant-writers to remember is that they might submit a perfect application and still receive a rejection.. Most foundations have limited resources with which to fund projects.. Do not get discouraged if you get a rejection from a possible funding source.. READ the grantor's guidelines and instructions carefully.. Do not try to make the grantor's program fit what you want to do - your program must be in line with the funding agency's priorities.. Ideas should be innovative, creative and educational.. Grantors will rarely fund operating expenses - they usually invest in supplemental programs.. Private foundations often seek creative solutions to problems/needs, but they usually do not wish to fund risky projects.. Try proposing a project that puts a fresh spin on an existing idea.. Keep your goals realistic! It is important to have an evaluation plan.. Grantors want to know if the projects they fund are successful--that your project is meeting its goals.. Is your project replicable? If so, tell the grantor how you plan to extend the project to other grades or schools.. Have a reasonable, detailed budget.. Do your homework on costs prior to submitting your application and be sure to explain your budget even if there are no requirements to do so.. If possible, cite research that supports the program for which you are requesting funding.. provides links to a number of helpful resources where you will find surveys and research to support various projects.. (Those who have purchased the SchoolGrants.. have access to links to an assortment of research reports that will assist them in their grant-writing efforts..

Spelling and grammar errors do not convey a positive image.. Follow the grantor's instructions to the letter..

Never forget to write thank-you notes - even if your project is not  ...   no one person has to take all the responsibility.. and reduces the hours spent writing grants after school! One head is better than two, anyway, or my favorite saying, The total is greater than the sum of the parts.. This has worked well for me in several districts, but it works best where you can get the Board and superintendent to offer a ten percent bonus to any person or team (local funds only) who writes and receives a grant from sources not normally used (like 'flow-through' grant funds that many state departments of education use to distribute state/federal funds).. *Dr..
