Proactive Grant Writing (Online)

Tue 9:00 AM to 11:15 PM
Topic: Nonprofit

As funding becomes more difficult to secure, non-profit organizations face significant challenges to fulfill their missions. This seminar reviews the questions non-profits need to answer prior to searching and applying for grant funds, outlines the 7 basic elements of most proposals, and shows participants how to match their needs to funder priorities. Participants focus on the major questions that need to be answered prior to a grant application and incorporating these answers into research and ultimately a competitive proposal. At the end of this session, you will be able to: 1) Determine if your organization is prepared to begin applying for grant funding. 2) Become familiar with questions that need to be answered prior to beginning research. 3) List and describe the 7 major elements of most grant proposals. 4) Learn how to be proactive in your grant writing, instead of reactive. 5) Understand the need for grant research. 6) Explain the characteristics of a good prospect. 7) Learn what to do once good prospects are identified via 990s, websites and more.
