Issuing out a realistic budget will help the organization to know how much money the grant seeker needs, and how the grant seeker will use this money for purposes of achieving the objectives of the organization under consideration. It is important to denote that the grant seeker is looking for money, and failure to provide his or her budget might making the reviewing panel to consider the grant seeker as a person who is not serious (Raymond, 2004).

Karsh and Fox (2009) further denote that a grant seeker must give out detailed information on why it is important to fund the program under consideration, and why he or she is the most capable person to get the funds and use it for solving the problem under consideration.

After the identification of the organization under consideration, there will be a need for carrying out research on how much this organization gives as grants (Zunz, 2012). This will help in developing a budget that does not surpass the amount of money that this organization normally gives out as grants. My budget must also be reasonable, factoring in all the necessary expenses and costs needed to achieve my organization’s objectives and mission. Finally, I will have to present to the organization my certificates for purposes of proving that I’m skillful in the area under consideration.
