Follow the </p><p>guidelines.</p><p> Realize that without a track record you may </p><p>not get everything you ask for. The more </p><p>grants you complete the more money people </p><p>will want to give you. </p></li><li><p>17</p><p>KEEP TRACK!</p><p> Keep track of the money you spend. Think </p><p>spreadsheet.</p><p> Keep track of people involved and what they </p><p>are doing and how often they are doing it.</p><p> Meet your deadlines or explain why.</p><p>If Florida is on fire and you cant take 300 kids </p><p>in the woods today then explain that to them.</p></li><li><p>18</p><p> Grant strategies and grant writing tips from TI</p><p> http://education.ti.com/educationportal/site</p><p>s/US/nonProductMulti/funding_grantstrate</p><p>gies.html</p><p> http://education.ti.com/educationportal/site</p><p>s/US/sectionHome/grantwriting.html</p><p> Wal-mart</p><p> Target Field Trip Grants!</p><p>Helpful URLs</p><p>http://education.ti.com/educationportal/sites/US/nonProductMulti/funding_grantstrategies.htmlhttp://education.ti.com/educationportal/sites/US/nonProductMulti/funding_grantstrategies.htmlhttp://education.ti.com/educationportal/sites/US/nonProductMulti/funding_grantstrategies.htmlhttp://education.ti.com/educationportal/sites/US/sectionHome/grantwriting.htmlhttp://education.ti.com/educationportal/sites/US/sectionHome/grantwriting.html</p></li><li><p>19</p><p>Remember that nothing is free!</p><p> There are things you need to do for the grant </p><p>and requirements you need to meet.</p><p> There is nothing worse then taking money </p><p>and not using it or spending it the wrong way.</p><p> If you need to change your budget tell them in </p><p>writing and give them the reasons why. Most </p><p>grants follow the 10% rule. </p></li><li><p>2020</p><p>Grant Writing Skills Agenda</p><p> Topic 1- Determining What You Want to Do </p><p>and What You Need to Do It</p><p> Topic 2- Finding a Source of Money</p><p> Topic 3- How to Garner Support and </p><p>Partnerships</p><p> Topic 4- Grant Terminology</p><p> Topic 5- Steps to Writing a Grant</p></li><li><p>21</p><p>Topic 3: How to Garner Support and </p><p>Partnerships?</p><p> Spread the word for what you need. I still get </p><p>two or three fish tanks donated each year.</p><p> Try it out on a small scale and then see what </p><p>works. Keep what works and get rid of the </p><p>rest. Set up activity stations and then add </p><p>more. </p></li><li><p>22</p><p>Get Help When you Need It!</p><p> Ask in your county: Do you have a grants specialist? </p><p> Ask if anyone you know has received one of these grants before.</p><p> Ask the granting agency for someone to mentor you.</p><p> For example, each National Service Learning Leader School is responsible for sharing their knowledge and helping others write service learning grants. Every state has these.</p></li><li><p>23</p><p>What is a partner and how to find one!</p><p> Volunteers already working with you</p><p> Businesses already helping you</p><p> Mentors, scientists, agencies already working </p><p>with you</p><p> All around you there are partners. Your </p><p>students, parents, administrators, fellow </p><p>teachers, and anyone else you know may be </p><p>able to suggest a partner to help you.</p></li><li><p>2424</p><p>Grant Writing Skills Agenda</p><p> Topic 1- Determining What You Want to Do </p><p>and What You Need to Do It</p><p> Topic 2- Finding a Source of Money</p><p> Topic 3- How to Garner Support and </p><p>Partnerships</p><p> Topic 4- Grant Terminology</p><p> Topic 5- Steps to Writing a Grant</p></li><li><p>25</p><p>Topic 4: Grant Terminology</p><p>What are Matching Funds?</p><p> This means that for every $1 you receive from </p><p>a grant you will receive a $1 from John Smith </p><p>or Mary Doe for the project.</p><p> Matching funds requires actual cash for the </p><p>project to match the grant funding amount.</p></li><li><p>26</p><p>What is In-kind?</p><p> In-kind means any contribution of supplies, </p><p>materials, equipment etc. </p><p> For most grants, human resources fall under </p><p>in-kind but most grants separate it out to help </p><p>with record keeping.</p></li><li><p>27</p><p>What are Human Resources and how are </p><p>they valued?</p><p> These are volunteer hours from scientists, </p><p>mentors, business people, etc. that are valued </p><p>at a set rate per hour. For example, in the </p><p>State of Florida you can count $18.00 per hour </p><p>for each volunteer you can DOCUMENT! So </p><p>create a sign-in sheet with names, dates, and </p><p>times and have your volunteers sign-in every </p><p>time they work with you.</p></li><li><p>28</p><p>Get It Written and Then Get Help Again!</p><p> Get the English Department to proof it.</p><p> Get someone out of field to read it. See if your goals are clear to them.</p><p> Dont be discouraged if at first you dont succeed. Keep trying and call the agency and ask what you can do to improve for next time.</p><p> Expect to get half the budget you ask for and plan what you can get done on that.</p></li><li><p>2929</p><p>Grant Writing Skills Agenda</p><p> Topic 1- Determining What You Want to Do </p><p>and What You Need to Do It</p><p> Topic 2- Finding a Source of Money</p><p> Topic 3- How to Garner Support and </p><p>Partnerships</p><p> Topic 4- Grant Terminology</p><p> Topic 5- Steps to Writing a Grant</p></li><li><p>30</p><p>Topic 5: Steps to Writing a Grant</p><p>SAMPLE Grant Application- based on </p><p>FUTURES Foundation Grant</p><p>1.
