This grantwriting workshop provides an overview of the fundraising cycle. You will prepare an internal case for your organization in preparation to apply for grants. The process of researching and applying for grants from federal, state, and foundation funding sources will be covered. You will learn how to develop a creative idea, locate the right funding source, and write an effective proposal that includes an introduction, problem statement, objectives, timeframe, and evaluation. Come with an idea for funding. The workshop is specially suited to fundraisers, teachers, non-profit administrators, and related professionals. This workshop is designed for those raising or wishing to raise funds for nonprofit organizations with a 501c3 designation in hand or in process.
(This is part of the Grantsmanship Certificate Program, but you do not need to enroll in the program to take this workshop.)
