Taking the Mystery Out of Grant Writing

September 18, 2024 2pm

Partner Exclusive Webinar with Susan Kaderka

Grant writing is essentially an exercise in making a case for why a funder should support your organization. Each part of a grant proposal can and should contribute to making a strong case. In this webinar, we will frame the component parts of a generic grant proposal--Organizational History, Statement of Need, Project Description, Evaluation, Budget, Attachments—as a series of questions that funders are asking prospective grantees to answer. We will explore strategies that enable grant seekers to use each section of the grant to build the strongest possible case for funding. Participants will have a clear understanding of what funders are seeking in each section of a grant proposal and will come away with strategies for using the components of a grant proposal to build a strong case for the program or project they want to get funded.
