Writing an effective grant is all about connecting the dots: what is the funder seeking and how do I  demonstrate my organization’s link to their specific interests? Learn to write a compelling and competitive grant in this lively and fun introduction to nonprofit grant writing.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Research and identify prospective funders via the internet and other resources (“who should I ask for what?”)
  • Use compelling and relevant language to interest grant reviewers in their organization’s impact and mission
  • Develop the program narrative in a way that highlights the most important elements from the funder’s perspective
  • Employ clear, concise, positive style
  • Format for readability and understanding
  • Develop budgets and prepare other required materials
  • Prepare to provide accurate and timely reports
  • Generally, leave with an understanding of the major components of an effective grant

This half-day, hands-on session will focus on grant writing and researching corporations and foundations.
