To provide participants with the critical tools needed to identify potential funders and write successful grant proposals or applications. Understand the reasons most grants fail to get funded: the proposal or application was incomplete; the wrong funder was approached; or the funder’s guidelines were not followed to the letter. Grant proposal writing is part art and part science. Learn to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the funder/grantor’s needs, goals, and concerns. Finding a funder for a project requires careful evaluation of past grants, goals, and related information. This half-day program will help attendees understand how to identify the right funder, determine what the funder is looking for, and structure a grant application/ proposal.
