For the novice, as well as those with some experience, this webinar provides a fresh new approach to grantwriting. The rule for grantwriting is simple: 80% of your time on preparation and 20% of your time on writing. Does your grantwriting process follow this rule? What does that 80% include? How do you build organizational credibility into your request? What should you be doing to strengthen everything from your statement of need to your explanation of the impact the grant award will have? Take the time to re-consider how you present basic documents such as your budget, organizational description, and board and staff bios so they add significant credibility to your request. When that grant application comes across your desk you want to be prepared to win! Join GrantStation's CEO, Cynthia Adams, who will provide a fast-paced, content rich session with plenty of time to address your questions.

Cynthia M. Adams has spent the past 40 years helping nonprofit organizations raise the money needed to do their good work. Many of her early efforts centered on raising funds to set aside wilderness areas in Alaska. In 1990 she started her first company, the Alaska Funding Exchange. This endeavor served as the testing ground for a national company, GrantStation, which opened its Internet doors in the fall of 2001. Cindy built this business because she believes that grantseeking requires a thorough understanding of the variety and scope of grantmakers and sound knowledge of the philanthropic playing field. Her life's work has been to level that playing field, creating an opportunity for all nonprofit organizations to access the wealth of grant opportunities across the U.S. and throughout the world.
