Step 2: Understand your audience

It will be important to explain why NumWorks is the best option for your students in a way that is meaningful to your audience. The language and justification you use will depend on their goals.


Share that the NumWorks calculator is intuitive, easy to use and faster than any other handheld device. It's inspired by the devices they use daily.


Discuss how NumWorks will help students perform better on exams and how educators will need to spend less time teaching how to use calculators.

Step 3: Take action

1. Deadlines

Remember that grants have deadlines and local businesses will frequently have year end giving goals. Similarly, schools have annual budgets and surplus spending timelines.

2. Take notes

Create a spreadsheet of notable grants including their requirements and deadlines. While you research, write down any key phrases and goals that align with your own. Compile examples of similar proposals to find inspiration.

3. Create documents

Now that you know when you should apply for the grant or set up your community fundraiser, give yourself plenty of time to research and write needed documents.

4. Submit

Get a friend or family member to read over your proposal. Make sure your argument has been intentionally crafted 
to meet the goals of your audience. Submit all required documents on time.
