How to Effectively Complete the New Common Grant Application
San Antonio, TX
The San Antonio Funders’ Group recently developed a common grant application in which participating funders have agreed to use the same wording in their narrative questions. This means that nonprofits can write their narratives once and “recycle.” Eight funders have expressed an interest in using it so far.
To make this process easier, the San Antonio Area Foundation is hosting a three-hour workshop on how to address each narrative question in the common grant application. The workshop will also include a section on general grant tips from the San Antonio Funders’ Group. The lead instructor is Anne Connor, Director of Community Grants at Methodist Healthcare Ministries, with assistance from several other funders who will provide hands-on assistance with writing exercises in small groups.
The workshop will be held twice in December at the San Antonio Area Foundation’s NEW offices located in the Pearl at 303 Pearl Parkway, Suite 114, 78215 (please see map for directions).
- Thursday, December 13, 2012 | 9 a.m. - 12 noon
- Tuesday, December 18, 2012 | 9 a.m. - 12 noon
Future workshops will be scheduled in the coming months.
