Benjamin Franklin's Advice on Grantseeking

by Kevin Peters

Benjamin Franklin is a legendary figure in American history. While he may be fondly remembered for his scientific discoveries, he is also considered by some to be the father of American civil society. Most of us are familiar with his contributions to the creation of an independent American republic, but he also was an innovator when it came to philanthropy. Franklin helped lead "the first effort in British North America to offer tax relief in exchange for charitable activity" when he "persuaded municipal authorities to offer a property tax abatement in exchange for participation in a volunteer fire company." Franklin also helped create the idea of the matching grant, persuading the colonial government to match private donations of £2,000 to build the Pennsylvania Hospital. However, despite his storied history as scientist and statesman, he may be most famous for his ability to turn a clever phrase. Let's take some of his famous quotes and see if we can apply them to the modern art of grantseeking.
