Novice grant seekers will be walked through the progressive steps of the grant process, including proposal planning, research tools, writing, the submission process and the funder-grantee relationship. Discussion will include how to define funding needs, what types of grants exist and how they differ, how to con-duct funding research, steps in writing a solid proposal, essential components of the grant package, how to approach different types of funders and how to match your requests to grant maker interests and what to do after the decision.
Emphasis will be on determining which grant opportunities best match your organization’s programs so that you can focus your energy on preparing clear and compelling proposals that are most likely to succeed. Get tips on how to make your request stand out among multiple submissions to reviewers who may have little familiarity with your organization, ensuring that your proposal tells a persuasive story, while sharing all the information the funder needs to assess it. As you hone your grantsmanship skills, you’ll get valuable resources that will aid you in maximizing this potentially powerful stream in your fundraising mix.
