Is Your Site Grant-Ready? is an AASLH Technical Leaflet. AASLH Technical Leaflets are brief, practical guides on how to do history. Technical Leaflet #257 by Sarah S. Brophy utlines the steps that must be taken before applying for grants with an easy-to-use checklist that guides grant-writing preparation. Applying for a grant is not easy task and requires more preparation than just writing a narrative. This leaflet outlines what granting foundations find attractive and how to prepare for a grant application, from matching your institution with the right funders to determining what sets apart your organization from other applicants. Brophy explains what aspects of an organization funders will examine -organizational mission, location and audience, impact/effect, quality, and edge. She also provides tips for demonstrating the match between funders and deserving organizations.
