Learn how to write a grant for your organization or for someone else!

February 20th: Grant Writing

At our grant training, you will learn a multi-tiered approach to understanding the entire grant writing process including: research, data collection, learning to grant write persuasively, speaking the funder’s language, and Grantwrittingproposal submission.  We even help organizations get their programs/projects ready to receive the grant money by appropriate reporting, charting, accounting methods, tax filings, and budgeting. Part of the training is dispelling myths about the grant writing process, so that each person can write effectively and with the appropriate information. During our comprehensive grant writing training workshops, attendees begin to write grants by the end of the class.  That’s right, you will understand how to write effectively and persuasively.
