THIS IS A WORKSHOP FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN LEARNING HOW TO FIND GRANTS ONLINE AND HOW TO WRITE SUCCESSFUL GRANT PROPOSALS.
Want to learn what makes for a good grant proposal? Ever wonder why some funders love your project but others aren’t interested? If you are new to grant writing, or if you or your program staff struggle with how to translate your program ideas into fundable proposals, this workshop may help you.
This workshop will provide an overview of basics around grant proposal writing and preparation through a combination of pre-writing exercises, interactive learning, and online techniques.
We will discuss:
- What makes an organization or program “grant ready”?
- Ethos, Pathos and Logos: Why Aristotle would have been a great grant writer
- Basic parts of a proposal, including the budget
- How NOT to get funded – details matter
- Why a successful fit with a funder is like a successful prom date
- Some resources for finding funders
Grant workshops often devote whole days or multiple days to these topics. This morning-long session will provide basic tips to get you started and allow time for questions.
