Writing Winning Grant Proposals

July 9, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm EDT

Certificate Program: Executive Leadership


While nonprofits complain about the difficulty of obtaining funding from foundations, foundations complain about the scarcity of really good proposals. In this workshop, we will discuss what makes a project compelling to a funder, and how to paint a vibrant picture of your organization and programs through the limited format of a typical proposal.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • The language of proposal writing
  • The eleven basic components of a proposal
  • How to “attack” an RFP
  • How to develop strong program objectives

This workshop is best suited for:

  • Proposal writers with less than three years of experience
  • Executive directors, program directors and development directors with proposal writing job responsibilities
