Grant Writing for Impact
Whether you’re a first-time grant writer or have some experience, this workshop is for you! Your trainer for the day will guide you through the necessary components of grant writing: research, building a strong narrative, the budget process, and reporting. Additionally, we will address the importance of relationship building and stewardship in that process. Grant applications should not be viewed as a way to simply fund operations, but as a tool to measure growth and impact. This class will help participants understand how to position themselves to be competitive in the nonprofit landscape. The presenter will share her 15 years of experience with grant writing, both pitfalls and successes. At the conclusion, there will be time for questions, with the opportunity to discuss participants’ unique challenges with grant writing.
A recording of this event will be shared with registered participants, though any activity in breakout rooms cannot be captured.
