Grant Writing Workshop

On Friday September 8, 2017

What you will learn

½ day, $50 (meal included)

What percentage of your total income comes from grants? Would you like it to be more?

The Grant Writing Workshop provides an overview of how your non-profit or corporate foundation can potentially increase the success rate of your proposal process. You will learn the elements of building a proposal: the executive summary, introduction, statement of the problem, building a case for support, budgets, and more.

This evening workshop will take a deeper look into what foundations look for in proposals, as well as tips for research, and how your organization can gain income from foundation grants.

Ideal attendees for the Grant Writing Workshop are: conservatives who want to raise more money for their cause through foundation grants by using proven methods to get your organization's grant considered.

Attendees will learn how to:

• Write a persuasive one-page proposal
• Craft proposals that result in foundation donations
• Use the best research tools and methods to find potential partner foundations
• Write a Letter of Inquiry, a cover letter, and full proposal

NOTE: You'll also benefit from attending the following LI programs: Comprehensive Fundraising School, High-Dollar Fundraising, and Direct Mail School.
