Description of Workshop:
Make your grant-seeking more effective by joining us for this interactive workshop.
This is NOT “Grant Writing 101” but a review and discussion of strategies that address funders’ concerns, designed to increase the competitiveness of your proposals. Participants will hear what select local and national funders say about grant proposals. Topics include qualifying the funder, developing relationships with funders, and creating powerful responses to address funders’ needs.
