Rachel Saint Firmin

For many nonprofits, grant writing is a critical piece of a larger fundraising strategy. But if your organization is new to grant writing, building a strong grants program can feel like an overwhelming task.

In this FREE one-hour workshop, Rachel Saint Firmin, an experienced fundraiser and and consultant from Elevate, will share some of the biggest lessons we’ve learned from building sustainable grants programs for our clients, including:

  • How to tell whether grant writing is right for your organization;
  • The pillars of a strong grants program;
  • Which tasks and pieces to focus on first; and
  • The systems we use to make sure our own grant writing processes run smoothly.

This workshop will be hosted at The Link at Kendall Square, located steps away from the Kendall Square T station, right next to the Marriott.
