After collecting all the language you need for each prompt in your proposal, you can export your draft to Word or Google Docs and edit as you normally would. Once you’ve submitted your proposal to the funder, simply load the finalized language into your Rote library so you have it for your next project.
- Can be used by either internal teams or those writing proposals on behalf of clients.
- Tag and filter language by question topic, date written, program initiative, focus area, proposal outcome, and more.
- Build a library of research materials and frequently-referenced statistics or other excerpts.
- Store useful language that didn’t make it to the final draft, right alongside your final language.
Is Rote for you?
Rote is built for anyone writing funding proposals – nonprofits, startups, independent grant writers, agencies, researchers – but it’s definitely most valuable for those writing at least two proposals for the same organization each month.
Who is behind Rote?
Rote was dreamed up by a young woman named Kelly Claus while she was serving as Operations Director for a small nonprofit in New York City. New to the world of grant writing, and totally clueless about the organization’s institutional fundraising history, she wasted hours digging through the hundreds of files on her organization’s servers to find the language she needed. Fifteen years (and a couple of careers) later, she’s now a software developer, and has finally been able to realize the system she wishes she had way back when.
