There are few skills so vital in nonprofit life as grant writing. What does it take to move an idea into action or to write a plan that is so effective that a funder is willing to support it? For many nonprofit organizations, the answers to these questions are the keys to successful fundraising.
This is a foundational course that assumes that participants have little or no experience in grant writing, and all of the activities are geared for people who are novices in this field. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will understand: 1) the importance of writing a solid action plan before developing a grant proposal; 2) techniques for researching and selecting appropriate foundations that might support that action plan; and 3) how to effectively write a grant that “sells!” This workshop is appropriate for practitioners at all levels of practice who assist their organizations in fundraising, either as a staff member, a board member, or a volunteer.
