What to include in a letter of support for a grant application

Some grant applications ask for a letter of support or commitment when there’s a partner organization or multiple stakeholders involved in a project. We find that organizations usually leave these for the last minute and find themselves scrambling to get a third party to write a letter of support.

 

A letter of support is similar to an MOU in a federal grant application. They’re usually a little less formal, though. This letter is often included as an attachment to a grant application, but you should think of it as an important piece of the argument you’re making in favor of your work.

 

Letters of support should:

  • Thoroughly detail the agreement or relationship as it pertains to the grant application
  • Be signed and printed on the letterhead of the representative’s organization
  • Add testimonies to prove the grant applicant is suited for the project/relationship
  • Cite specific successes, metrics, goals, and objectives
  • Name specific resources or people involved in the project

 

To save time, you can draft a letter of support for the signer, or give them bullet points to start with. No one likes staring at a blank page! There are plenty of great examples on the internet if you search for “sample letter of support,” or something similar.
