Sample Grant Proposal Writer Cover Letter
April 2, 2010
Dear Hiring Manager:
Perhaps you are looking for a development officer or grant proposal writer who can think critically and is able to develop compelling arguments. As a well-organized, detail-oriented educator and administrator, I believe I offer the right combination of skills to be just that person.
As you can see from my resume, I have more than 20 years of experience in education, including more than 13 years in administrative leadership roles, where I had the opportunity to write grants for the Los Alamos Board of Education. In addition to having excellent writing and communications skills, I have demonstrated an ability to effectively handle multiple tasks and keep them on track. I also have excellent relationship-building skills and a proven track record of working cooperatively with and getting results through others.
In the past, I have been able to combine my ability to think critically with strong administrative and organizational skills and a willingness to learn new things to contribute to a better organization. I would be most pleased to be considered for a position within your organization, as I know I could put these same skills to good use for you. I have enclosed my resume for your review and look forward to hearing from you to discuss how I might be able to meet your needs. Please feel free to contact me at the number listed below.
Thank you for your consideration.
