Advanced Grant Writing

About the Workshop:

Advanced Grant Writing

Preparing a grant application or proposal is more than just asking for money to fund your organization and its programs.  Private Foundations, Corporations and Governmental Agencies want to invest their $$$ in an organization’s programs that fit their own goals and in projects that should in all likelihood succeed.   We will go into detail on explaining/developing each essential element of a successful grant proposal. You will also take away some examples of successful grants and proven techniques – that you can use as models as you develop/write your own proposals that are competitive and are likely to be funded.
