Jennyscribbles's Blog

Just another WordPress.com site

This is another blog that me and my team mates from my senior capstone are doing. It will keep track of our grant writing experience with a non-profit called WISDOM/DOS, which I am very excited about! Yay.

This is our official first post! My name is Jenny, and if you are reading this, you support the wellness of the Native American communities, especially those within the metro area of Portland, Oregon. We are 5 women in pursuit of a grant to help our local Native American community to obtain funding for the betterment of their/our community. I (Jenny) will be the main writer in this blog, but the information will come from four other women with unique contributions of their own and maybe sometimes their creative inspiration will take over and they’ll write as well! If you do not know much about this rich culture, the organization we chose to help is called Discovering Our Story, and their website is full of history and their many missions they’ve taken on for their people.   www.discoveringourstory.org 

Now that our process is successfully moving forward, I will be glad to share our process, thoughts and feelings, and whatever we learn that is worth sharing…

  1. From grant writer to grant writer, I wish the five of you the best of luck! I don’t know if any of you ladies have grant writing experience, but if you need any help, contact me at jason@grantpros.org. I also have grant writing tips on my website at http://www.grantpros.org

  2. Hey jason, Thanks for the support! We are all learning at this point about grants, and the process is slow going to get on the same page with the organization and finding an appropriate funding source. We hope to have this done this week so we can start our proposal! We won’t hesitate if we need advice. I’ll check out your blog later on today when I’m home. 🙂

    • Great! My time is free for you and your group. I want you to keep in mind that actually finding a suitable match for a grantmaking organization is the hardest part! (Some may disagree, but that’s how I feel!) Writing the proposal is the easy part; not EASY, but definitely the easier of the two! I hope to hear from you soon!

  3. Oh, it took a lot of research for us to find one we all agreed on. But we found a great one that we have the best chance with. I’m not sure I should put it up here, is that ok? hah. Thanks, sorry it took me so long to read this, I had a crazy week last week!
