do you think that the majority of people who are denied in their first
try for a grant seldom, if ever, apply a second time?" asked
funder, an Arts Council selection committee member.
that's a good question," I replied. "My best
guess is that the applicants never realize that re-applying is even an
option. They take rejection personally and never find
out why they are denied or how to improve their proposals."
"Yes, you're right."
She added, "The
interesting thing is that if applicants ask for
feedback, we would give it to them. Then, if
they revise their grants and submit them a second time, the chance we would
fund them actually doubles."
Here's the truly amazing part ...
She continued, "If an applicant is denied that second time,
but asks for

third time, I can pretty much guarantee you that the proposal will be funded."
Wow! Did you hear that?

GIVE AWAY THEIR MONEY!

(the most recent figures available).
You see ... by federal law, many
of these grant-making Foundations MUST GIVE AWAY 5 percent of the market
value assets or interest income each year, whichever is greater.
This law means, for example, that the W.K. Kellogg Foundation
with $8 billion in market assets must award at least $400
million annually. This law means that if you're not applying,
you're losing out. In less than 15 minutes per day, you'll learn how to
use this information to your advantage.
Likewise, you may not have even

WHERE THEY LIVE!
a geographic focus and give grant funding where their plants are located. The
workers, products and other vested interests play a significant role
in corporate giving. That's the good news.
The bad news is
privately-owned businesses, corporations have no obligation to
disseminate information about their philanthropic activities. They
are responsible to stockholders not the general public.
You're probably wondering, "Where
can I find corporate grant information, then?" Don't worry ...
