Basic Grant Writing

One core credit toward Revenue Development Certificate

Basic Grant Writing is intended for new fundraising professionals or anyone who needs to learn the foundational skills of writing grants for his/ her position. 

The competition for corporate and foundation support is fierce. The ability to write a proposal that will result in funding is in high demand. In this hands-on session, participants will assess organizational readiness, review private versus public funding sources, learn the 10/60 rule, address the proposal fundamentals, and critique grants. This workshop provides practical help with the fundamentals of writing grant proposals and obtaining available funding.

Through this workshop, participants will:
  • State the uniqueness of your organization in making a case for support
  • Write compelling sections of a proposal
  • Successfully respond to 70% of the 10/60 rule of grant writing
  • State specific things reviewers look for when evaluating grants and why proposals fail
