Roll up your sleeves! This intensive Three Day Grantwriting Workshop is designed to help you expand your knowledge and develop the skills needed to prepare a winning grant proposal. The workshop is filled with “how-to” instructions, samples, and exercises that will help you through the process. Whether you are new to grant writing, or want to improve your skills, this workshop is for you.
After a brief overview of some of the basics, participants will practice preparing sections that appear in all proposals, including the Introduction, Agency Description, Needs Statement, Program Description, Goals, Objectives, and Evaluation for Outcomes. Preparing a Program Budget will also be covered. Participants will learn to research potential funders in government, foundations and corporations, and the importance of relationship-building for success in grantseeking. Come to class with a program idea in mind to use in developing a proposal. A Grantsmanship workbook will be provided to each participant.
Participants, upon completion of the course, will be able to:
- Produce a proposal with an introduction, problem statement, goals and objectives, evaluation plan, dissemination plan and budget.
- Identify and approach funding sources.
- Conduct risk assessment to evaluate match between organization and funders.
