Grant Writing Nuts and Bolts 


Preparing and submitting a successful grant proposal can be an intimidating process for both new and also experienced grant writers. While there is no one magic formula to use when writing grants, there are many best practices to lean on that will heighten your chances for success. Join Independent Grant Writer and CNE consultant member, Laurie Rogers, to learn practical and proven techniques to strengthen your grant writing power and secure funds for your organization.

Participants will walk away with:

  • Steps to ensure your agency is grant-ready;
  • Tips and resources for grant research;
  • Helpful talking points to use with funders prior to proposal submission;
  • Tools to use for building each component of the proposal.

All nonprofit fund development staff and volunteers are encouraged to attend.
