Grant Writing Essentials

Grant writing is asking for money to address an identified need that aligns with a funder's philanthropic objectives.  If you want your grant proposal to shine, then master the basics and get some tips to make your proposal stand out.

This full day workshop will cover grant writing essentials including writing a needs statement, using outcome based evaluation and developing a grant proposal plan.  You will also learn to interpret grant maker guidelines.  These components lay the foundation for generating a compelling, successful grant application.

You will have an opportunity to do some practice writing, so bring your laptop.
