From Soup to Nuts – A Grant Writing Workshop – September 17

Registration Required – Click here for registration

Grantwriting can be very competitive, but it does not have to be difficult. Nonprofits are competing over limited funds, so it’s critical you’re putting forth the strongest applications on behalf of your organization. Learn how to identify specific funders, what funders are looking for, and how to tell your nonprofit’s story effectively. Ample time will be available for your specific questions.

Upon completion of this sessions, participants will be able to:

  • Identify prospective funding matches
  • Organize your grant seeking efforts
  • Apply a logic model to your programs
  • Describe a quality proposal
  • Explain why grants are denied
