Event description

Description

For those new to grantwriting, completing a first-rate grant proposal is not as difficult as one may think. Whether you have spent time in a small or large nonprofit organization, or are a novice to nonprofits, this class will help you with the mechanics of writing an effective proposal. However, successful grant writing is more than just writing the proposal. You will also learn tips for increasing your chances of success -- such as how to approach funders, following up, etc.

You will learn:

  • Why preparation is the key to success
  • The elements of a proposal
  • Tailoring your message
  • How to establish the structure and tone of the proposal
  • The importance of relationships with grant makers

What to Bring: A project or grant proposal you are currently working on or plan to work on soon.

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 "Introduction to Grantwriting" sessions. If you attended before, there is no need to attend again.

Melissa Whipps

Grant & Not-for-Profit Consultant
