Description

Yes, there is a formula for crafting winning grant applications! This class will share this framework with you using a combination of presentation, discussion and exercises. We’ll also reveal many secrets of grant application success – including: it is more important to be a good strategist than a good writer. Get ready to look at grant writing in a new way – and energize your fundraising efforts! We’ll cover the basics of applications that support nonprofit organizations; and join us if your level is anywhere from beginner up to intermediate.

  • Overview of grant funding
  • Your “success compass” – Top-line information about three key areas will point the way to a strong application. In this class we will focus on what you need to know and how to gather that information.
    • Know your organization
    • Know your potential funder
    • Know yourself (and your job)
  • The application journey – Once you have the facts above, you are ready to take the application journey. A strong application process will help you build a successful application. This class will teach the essential activities of going from step to step to step.
    • Step one: Our Nonprofit Organization has a Dream
    • Step two: We Have Found a Potential Grant Funder
    • Step three: We Have Turned in the Application
    • (Step four: Celebrate Success!)
  • Key tools for success – Now that you have the outline of what you need and how to proceed, this last section will give you practical tips, tools and hacks for crafting a successful application.

Your instructor, Susannah Erler, Director of Greater Good Strategies, has been writing grant applications since the 1990s and has raised over $10 million in grant funds for recipient organizations.

Susannah also holds a master's degree in Business with an Arts Administration (Nonprofit) specialization, is a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE), is on the organizing team of Austin’s Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN) Chapter and loves posting on Twitter via @GreaterGoodGeek.
