Grants are helpful and fairly easy to come by -- comparatively speaking -- when your organization is just starting out, or undertaking a new program or capital campaign. But don't get used to them. Grants shouldn't be the backbone -- the essence -- of your development plan. If they are, you'll soon find out how hard it is to make the transition to multi-level, integrated funding streams -- and how necessary.
