Survey: Building a Better Grant Writing Process

This message is posted on behalf of Mina Demian.

Hello, wonderful friends in the nonprofit world!

My name is Mina, and like you, I’m devoted to making a difference through our work. Today, I’m reaching out to ask for a small favor—a favor that comes with the promise of coffee!

I’m on a quest to make grant writing less intimidating and more rewarding. We’ve all faced those late nights, endless revisions, and the odd coffee mishap in our quest for the perfect application. That’s exactly what I want to address.

I’ve put together a quick survey (just 5 minutes!) to delve into our experiences with grant writing—the successes, the challenges, and everything in between. Your insights will be invaluable in shaping a tool designed to enhance our grant-writing efforts, making them more effective and less frustrating.

To show my appreciation for your time and insights, I’m offering a $5 Starbucks gift card for a coffee on me (or if you prefer, a dose of good karma). It’s a small way to say thank you and perhaps provide a little extra motivation to share your experiences.

If you’re willing to share your grant-writing stories, please visit the following link:

Your feedback could significantly impact our collective future in grant writing, making it a smoother and more successful journey for us all.

Thank you for considering my request. Together, we can take some of the stress out of grant writing and turn it into a more rewarding experience.

Wishing you a day filled with positivity and productivity,


P.S. If you have any questions, are curious about the survey results, or if coffee isn’t your thing (tea, anyone?), don’t hesitate to reach out. I’m here to support you in any way I can.
