From letter proposals to federal proposals, grant writing is a key fundraising strategy for every organization. The competition is fierce, and you need to make sure your organization is getting the serious consideration it needs and deserves.

This session will combine fundamental and advanced information about grant writing with time to write to make sure you leave with a proposal you can use as the core of your asks for the next year.  You will work individually and in small groups with a nationally-known expert and credentialed grant professional to develop both emotionally compelling descriptions of the work you are doing, as well as cold, hard facts that back up your claim to be a positive force in the world.

As a tactical session, we will be responsive to answering your questions and providing immediate feedback on your writing.  Information about your organization and the program(s) your organization is implementing is necessary as is either a computer or paper and a writing utensil.  These intimate sessions, with no more than 24 in attendance, are hands-on opportunities that fill up quickly.  Reserve your spot today!
