Subject: Application for position of Grant Writer
Dear Mr. Gandy,
I read your advertisement recently for an experienced Grant Writer with a proven track record, and I am a great choice for this position for many reasons. Please find the details of the attached resume to this cover letter.
Over the last three years that I have worked as a Grant Writer for various nonprofits in the CA area; I have successfully researched, reviewed, drafted, and submitted almost one hundred grants for nonprofit companies needing everything from seed money grants to partnership grants and grants for supplies and specific programs. I have won more than half of these highly competitive grants. I completed a professional course at California Institute of Technology in Grant Writing, and have a list of clients to offer recommendations about my work ethic and quality writing. I have extensive knowledge of the grant making and writing process, have experience in working with federal and private foundation grant makers, and am dedicated to creating the most compelling and complete grants for success.
I am applying today, as I know my experience and track record could bring much success to your nonprofit in both the short term and long term vision of your company. Thanks so much for your review of this cover letter and resume.
