Grant writers must consider both the practical and conceptual aspects of a competitive grant proposal: Great proposals focus on the funding organization (be they a foundation or corporate grant maker) and include the “extras” that make the difference between success and failure.
The class will take a workshop-style format. In the morning, learners will discover what makes a winning grant and then work through crafting components of a generic grant. (This same grant will be used as the basis of hands-on practice throughout the other classes in the Certificate of Grant Fundraising.) For the afternoon portion, learners are encouraged to bring an in-development or prospective grant application for a writing and review session, including exercises, peer reviews, and group Q&A.
- Position your organization to be competitive through strong writing and thorough understanding of highly effective grant content.
- Research statistics that illustrate the problem statement.
- Structure and write letters of inquiry, proposals, and applications for foundation and corporate grants.
- Prepare a clear and compelling budget justification.
- Find information resources to help in writing grants.
