IMPORTANT NOTICE: The October 2020 session of this program is scheduled as a face-to-face classroom training during the Fall 2020 semester, but may be moved online due to future recommendations for distance learning due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Any updates will be posted on this page and all enrolled students will be notified by email of any anticipated curtailments. The November 2020 session is scheduled as a live online workshop.
This hands-on workshop will guide participants in presenting an internal case for their organization to apply for grant funding, including the process of researching and applying for grants from federal, state, and foundation funding sources.
Participants 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, time frame, and evaluation.
This workshop is applicable to fundraisers, teachers, nonprofit administrators, and related professionals, and is designed for those raising or wishing to raise funds for nonprofit organizations with a 501c3 designation (in hand or in process).
Participants are encouraged to come to the workshop prepared with an idea for funding. Please note this course combines the former courses titled “Grantwriting: The Fundamentals” (PDT-Grants-04) and “Grantwriting: Advanced” (PDT-Grants-03).
