Grants 101 (In-Person)

About the Workshop: 

Grants 101 is designed to provide attendees with an overview of the grant writing process. Participants will learn about different types of grant funders, the core components of a grant application, common attachments, how to work within their organization to find the information they need, and how to build and manage relationships with funders.

Participants do not need to have any grant experience. Content is intended for early-career grant writers and other nonprofit professionals with limited grant writing experience.

Grants 101 is being offered in both a 3 hour in-person format and 2 hour virtual format on seperate weeks. This is the 3 hour in-person session with more hands on activities.

Nearly all nonprofits have fallen into this trap: we've built our homes on rented land, with social media as the main avenue to grow our influence and find new donors. But we don't control that space and who sees our content. And the algorithms change, older platforms fall out of favor as new ones emerge and it is hard to keep up with the changes.

Nonprofits can pivot towards brand-building tactics that provide reliable reach.  Learn to build your house on land you own. This workshop will teach you the seven steps to grow your base of support in reliable and consistent ways.
