So You Want FREE Publicity?

GrantNews.press is where nonprofits and small businesses can showcase their cause. They can discuss their programs and how they operate. The goal is to illustrate a replicable program so that someone in another state can do the same kind of work.

The Process

For example, if you have a program that benefits at-risk youth, you might first go to our sister-site, GrantWatch.com and subscribe to a paid plan. Then, you’d find grants that are relevant to you (under Youth/Out-of-School Youth) and solicit a grant writer from GrantWriterTeam.com. The grant writer will help you write your grant. Finally, you would write about your program(s) at GrantNews.press.

Your Programming

In your article, discuss what a community in another state can model after you. Describe your target community and your programs. Possibly, an individual or group in another state will be inspired by your story and try the same type of work. If you are unable to write the article yourself, please ask for our GrantNews.press copywriter and editor. They will be able to write for you.

Grants

In your article, you might decide to talk about the grants you are interested in, how you prepared to apply and any pointers you would bestow upon others. We have had professional grant writers write for us and explain how to succeed in the grant writing process.

Crowdfunders

GrantNews.press is a unique platform. Our online newspaper is dedicated solely to articles about the nonprofit and small business world, the grant application process and crowdunding. GrantNews.press is also a place for crowdfunders to share their efforts. If you put up a project on our sister-site, Uhelpfund, you should write an article about why you are trying to raise money.

Your project will be launched to our social media platforms, and your article will, as well. You will also have an additional link to share with potential contributors to tell them about your campaign.

Small Businesses

GrantNews.press is known as the premier newspaper for nonprofit and business leaders. So, it also accepts stories from small businesses. Share your start-up story or what you do and how you fund your business through grants. There are unique things that should be included in a small business grant application, that you can expound upon.

How to Start

Just sign up as a writer here: Writer Sign Up. Then, start an article. Once you’ve planned your article, save and then PITCH your article. Remember, you have to open the article again in order to pitch it. Once you’ve pitched your story, GrantNews.press will be in touch with you within one business day.

Write for GrantNews.press: Looking for Writers and Journalists

Libby Hikind, the Founder and CEO of GrantNews.press, GrantWatch.com and five other grant websites, was once a young aspiring writer. Libby was given the opportunity to start her writing career by a local newspaper that welcomed her first press release and feature article.

Libby

According to Ms. Hikind, she got her start in the 1980s with a class assignment while working towards her Educational Administration and Supervision Post Graduate degree at Brooklyn College. The assignment was to write an original press release about a program or activity at a school.

Libby wrote her press release about a Science Fair hosted by Isaac Bildersee Middel School, where she taught at the time, and submitted it to Nat Rothman, the school principal, for his approval. Seeing Libby’s potential and ambition, Mr. Rothman helped Libby revise her press release in keeping with the school culture. Libby submitted it to The Canarsie Courier and the Science Fair's attendance was exceptional.

Her next Brooklyn College assignment was a full article with a byline. When NYC Council Member Herbert Berman addressed her Brooklyn College Politics in Education class, Libby took copious notes and, fueled with enthusiam, wrote a feature article for The Canarsie Courier. The editor at the paper, Charles Rogers (known as “Chuck”), then became her mentor.  Libby recounts, “I’ll always remember how my hands shook when I went to buy multiple copies of the newspaper with my byline! I want to give this same opportunity to others, just as it was given to me.” 

Writers

GrantNews.press, the premier newspaper for nonprofit and business leaders, is looking for new writers who currently work for nonprofits or small businesses and/or are willing to interview executives.  According to Libby Hikind, “We are accepting articles about local replicable programs that benefit the community and can be modeled in other communities across the globe.”

Writers should include:

•             The trials and tribulations,

•             The impetus for starting the nonprofit or small business, and

•             The successes that will encourage other nonprofit leaders to carry it forward.

The newspaper is also looking for writers who can provide social media, crowdfunding or fundraising "How-To" articles for nonprofit and small-business executives.
