Stick with the facts and make sure the letter is written very professionally without any grammatical mistakes at all. Check online or at the library to get sample letters to follow as a guldeline.

The most important factor in submitting grant proposals is to stay focused on the grant's goals. If the grant program you choose awards funding directed at serving a particular population, such as the homeless, make sure that your letter tells specifically how you will use the funds to assist that community.

When writing grant letters, be sure to: -- Identify information about your agency -- what you will do with the money -- what is the compelling reason they should provide you the funds vs another agency.

Make sure that the information gathered and provided is as accurate and detailed as possible, with as much credence and proof behind it as possible.

Well you basically tell them how much you appreciate what they are offering and state the reasons why your company needs financial aid and how much you would benefit from the whole thing.

Follow the directions on the request for proposals of the particular grant. Create a proposed program that is congruent with what the agency/foundation is funding. Make sure your writing has no errors. Cite research that supports your funding idea. Write clearly so someone outside the field can understand your proposal.
