Description


Advanced Grantwriting: Sharpening Your Skills

Sharpen your existing grantwriting skills with this upcoming training designed for nonprofit staff members who already have basic grant proposal knowledge. Increasingly, funders are focusing their resources on organizations that are able to prove that their programs are impactful and sustainable. These points must be clearly articulated within a grant application. In this hands-on workshop, you will gain tools and knowledge to create stronger, more effective grant proposals.

In this session, you will:

• Learn what local funders look for in innovative projects and what to avoid in your proposals

• Hone skills in measuring and conveying your proposal’s impact and outcomes

• Learn to create stronger project budgets that accurately reflect true costs

• Use interactive exercises and case studies to bring your grantwriting knowledge to life

Due to space and class size considerations, this workshop is limited to TWO representatives per organization. Attendees should be affiliated with a nonprofit organization in a staff, board, or long-term volunteer capacity. Additionally, the content of the workshop will be similar to previous "Advanced Grantwriting" sessions. If you attended before, there is no need to attend again.

Melissa Whipps

Director of Proposal Development, Syracuse University

Kelly Fumarola

Grant & Not-for-Profit Consultant
