$500,000 Funding To Help YOU Reach Your Dreams?

Did you know that there is a grant program that offers a grant award of $500,000?  I'm helping a client now that will be applying to start her own daycare businesses helping needy children. 

This is a very unusual and gratifying award offered by not the government but by a foundation that wants to help people fulfill their dreams.  Of course you do not get the full $500,000 all at once but you get it over a number of years.  Since one of the criteria for being eligible for this grant award is having a "dream" you sould like you may definitely qualify to apply - so any grantwriter that you do get should be able to help you find out more about this grant program.

Unfortunately you will come upon people who say that there are no grants to help start a business or that there are no grants for for-profits.  Since I do this for a living I know that they just don't know what they are talking about!  However these programs will not come to you - you will have to go to them.  And since I have seen that no one has mentioned this very special grant program then that tells me that they just don't know about it or else they would be applying for it themselves (if they qualified)!
