How do you tell your organization’s story in only 2,500 characters?  150 words?

How do you create a storyline for the reviewer to follow when you have numerous fillable fields to complete online that may or may not be read in the order that you complete them on the screen?

Online grant applications are here to stay and overall bring a great deal of efficiency to the grant seeking and grantmaking process. However, the process looks and feels less personal.

One of the most common challenges with online applications is how to have your application stand out in a sea of grant applications when you are all faced with the same formatting restrictions and character or word limited requirements.
