Fort Worth - Chapter 120

Grant Writing 101

*This will be a live online workshop via Zoom*
Strategic and specific grant writing helps align the identified needs of a nonprofit (and its clients) with funding sources, whether foundations, government agencies, corporations or individuals. 

This workshop offers a guide to the technical details of grant writing, an increasingly crucial method for raising money to fund projects and programs for nonprofits and other organizations. 

In this workshop we will explore the relationship of grant writing to an organization's strategy for fundraising which is critical to running the business aspects of the nonprofit organization. It also outlines the stages of grant writing and highlights grant writing best practices.

Workshop Fee $50
