The use of appropriate language, making your proposal easy to read and proof-reading your proposal are three simple tips that can make all of the difference.

Using appropriate language for your audience is key.  You will need to make sure that even a person with no knowledge of your organization, cause or project understands what you are requesting in the proposal.  Be sure to avoid industry jargon and be politically correct to insure that readers perceive your grant proposal as ethically and legally sound.  Different sections of a proposal may require different types of writing.

Format your proposal so that it is easy to follow.  Include visuals in your proposal as many people retain information through use of images AND text.

Lastly, proof-read and revise.
