Grant Writing 101: Understanding The Basics

April 18, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Grant writing is more than just grants. To compete with other organizations for ever-tightening philanthropic dollars and give your organization a winning edge, you will need a sound and well developed fundraising program. If your organization is new to fundraising, or needs to strengthen its current program, then this workshop is for you. In this high-level course, you will:

Assess your organization’s readiness for fundraising
Ascertain the relationship between branding and fundraising
Review the elements of effective fundraising and strategic plans
Explore various types of revenue streams
Understand the differences between corporate, foundation, and government grants
Grasp the Do’s and Dont’s of grantwriting
Gain expert knowledge on how funders select winning applications
Know what to do once you’ve been awarded or denied the grant
Become familiar with the Moves Management process
Learn effective digital, online, and social media fundraising strategies

This is the first in a four part series on Grant Writing. You can choose to attend one or pre-purchase tickets for all four.
