Introduction to Grant-Writing

The ability to secure grants and other funding opportunities is critical to the success of organizations across many industries.  With the right planning and processes, ideas can grow into successful programs, and projects can turn into organizations, but it all starts with an application or proposal.  To many, the process of writing grants or proposals is a mystery or is daunting, and missed opportunities or poorly executed proposals lead to continued frustration or rejection.  In other cases, well-crafted proposals end up with the wrong "funder", and go nowhere.

In this three-part workshop series participants will -

  • develop an understanding of grants and other funding opportunities
  • develop applications and proposals that will meet the funding priorities and guidelines, thus increasing their chances of getting funded 
  • develop a step-by-step approach to identifying and evaluating funding opportunities
  • prepare for, plan, and develop a proposal that is consistent with each funder's goals
  • examine each component of the proposals
  • writing and planning strategies that will help each proposal to be competitive.

An interactive format will be used, and some optional "assignments" will be utilized to help reinforce the strategies covered.  When possible, participants are encouraged to bring funding ideas or projects on which they are currently working, as some opportunity for feedback may be available.
