The Art of Grant-Writing 221018 October 18, 2022, 10:00am PDT October 18, 2022, 11:30am PDT

A nonprofit grant is a sum of money given by a government, corporation, or foundation for a specific purpose and used to further the mutual mission between the grantee and grantor. This training provides a comprehensive overview of the process for developing a standard nonprofit grant proposal that can be used multiple times to pursue funding. Because the grant proposal serves as your template for grant-applications, EVERY nonprofit should have one!


At the conclusion of the training workshop, you should be able to:

  • Describe the three primary sources for grant funding.
  • Describe the 8 standard sections of a grant-proposal.
  • Understand key information to include in each section.
  • Understand why funding applications are denied and what to do about it.
  • Locate some of the best sources for finding grants .

Intended Audience: This course is designed to help pre-startup, newly formed, and small to mid-sized nonprofits position themselves for grant funding opportunities. Suitable for all levels of experience.

Registration Fee $35

 This is an interactive workshop for which we encourage your participation. The recording and slides will be sent only to those who attend.
