Dear Member,

When writing that pesky letter of inquiry to get the ball rolling on grant opportunities, don't use the space to tell the funding source your life story. In this month's eNews, we advise that less is more, and being concise will make a stronger argument.

And you had to be living under a rock to not have heard about the looming 'Fiscal Cliff'. Here's how to take responsibility before we all end up diving over the edge.

From all of us here at FireGrantsHelp.com, we hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season!

One last reminder: the clock is ticking on the FP&S deadline! Make sure you get grant writing help today.
