Proactive Grant Writing
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: • Determine if your organization is prepared to begin applying for grant funding. • Become familiar with questions that need to be answered prior to beginning research. • List and describe the 7 major elements of most grant proposals. • Learn how to be proactive in your grant writing, instead of reactive. • Understand the need for grant research. • Explain the characteristics of a good prospect. • Learn what to do once good prospects are identified via 990s, websites and more.
