NEW YORK, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GrantWatch, available online at http://www.GrantWatch.com, has a user friendly web portal designed for nonprofit grant givers to post clear and organized information about their funding opportunities. The site's new Enter a Grant - green button - provides a means for benefactors to quickly and easily share current funding opportunities with a wide, diverse audience.
According to Libby Hikind, Founder and CEO of Grantwatch, "With so many grants available, it was time to streamline the grants posting process. I wanted to make it simpler for the Foundations and government agencies to post their grants and for the organizations to view the offering. We compared many grant offerings and came up with fields and categories funding agencies need to describe their grant and what grant seekers need to quickly review and determine their interest, focus and eligibility."
To post information using the innovative new form, users simply click the green Enter a Grant button on the site's home page. From there, the site offers a comprehensive form that can be used to share all the funding details. The form requires basic information about each allocation, including an official and unofficial title.
Hikind recommends that the unofficial title (headline) include the word "grant" and explain the basics of the funding opportunity in accessible, everyday language. "Through the Enter a Grant form, patrons can specify a deadline for the funding or indicate that the opportunity is ongoing. A similar time frame can be set for letters of intent (LOI)," said Hikind. "Users must fully complete the contact information. We only publish legitimate grants."
GrantWatch's form also allows users to select from a comprehensive list of eligibility requirements and categories to refine the posting's description. They can specify a region, attach files, and add both a primary description and any supplementary material. GrantWatch recommends adding specifics, as they are an excellent way to ensure that the opportunity is noticed by the most compatible grant seekers. The form features Save and Continue buttons that allow users to complete work on their own schedules.
GrantWatch helps nonprofits, small businesses, and community organizations secure funding to support their initiatives via easily accessible listings featuring new sources of financial assistance.
GrantWatch is also introducing the Grant Writer Team program, which matches experienced professional grant writers with grant seekers. The grants writers' track records of success have resulted in an ever-increasing list of funding for all types of organizations.
