What Is Your Premise?
- Overwhelm – which clouds our decisions
- Blind spots – which skew our decisions
Check Your Premise
- Personally – before you get into nonprofit work or grant writing, or as you keep moving forward as a grant writer
- Nonprofits – as an organization, get clear on your premise before you keep working in so many directions (or get off track)
- Grant writers – before you write the grant, ask yourself: Does this align with your nonprofit mission and the funder’s mission?
