Grant Money
Grants are non-repayable funds disbursed by one party (government department, corporation, foundation, or trust) to a recipient (such as a nonprofit, educational institution, business or an individual) for a specific purpose.

In order to receive a grant, some form of "grant writing" in a proposal or an application is required. 

Most grants are made to fund a specific project, and they require some level of compliance and reporting. 

Some Spokane charitable foundations are moving away from spreading dollars across multiple causes; and instead, they are aiming to increase impact by focusing on key data-driven initiatives.
