Take the Quiz: Do you have what it takes to be a grant writer? Special Holiday Note: Support a Ministry-Based Business AND a Nonprofit Back in Episode 41, I introduced you to the talented Kari Bartkus of Love Does That. She shared her thought process behind starting a ministry-based business instead of a nonprofit. This Thanksgiving, instead of running a Black Friday sale, Kari is hosting more of a Black Friday giveback. She's donating a portion of all November sales to a local nonprofit in her community. Check out her beautiful encouraging resources at lovedoesthat.org. What Is the Seasonality of Grants? Most new grant writers and nonprofits don't realize that grants are typically seasonal. I sure didn't know that until I got into it! Fortunately my mentor explained this to me early on. Grant application deadlines tend to be especially busy early in the year throughout the spring season. This is particularly true for federal grants, although foundations can be the same way. Because of that, "grant season" (as it's known in professional circles) can get pretty hectic. If you aren't prepared and learn to pace yourself, you can end up exhausted and burned out. How Do I Prepare for Grant Season? The fall and winter seasons are the perfect time of year to be learning, planning, and offering other types of services to bring in a consistent income. As you're thinking through your ideal situation, consider: What is your ideal workload? What can you be learning and planning this time of year? (HINT: It's a perfect time to learn grant writing and map out your plan for next year!) How can you work ahead and prepare for grant season? How Do We Start?
