Writing Winning Grant Proposals – 3-Part Series
May 9 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm MDT$400 – $800
Through a three-program format, participants will be provided an overview of the grant proposal writing process with specific instructions on the basic requirements for writing a winning grant proposal. Identification of appropriate funding sources and how to effectively present proposals to those sources will be emphasized.
In the first session, participants will learn 1) how to effectively plan and manage a grant proposal; 2) tools and techniques to improve a proposal’s chance of being funded; and 3) how to write up the common elements for any proposal.
The second session will cover the use of logic models when building a proposal; ways to better communicate a theory of change to the funder; and how to articulate program outcomes and show how they impact the funding.
During the third session, participants will learn: 1) how to research funding sources to find the best fit for a proposal; 2) how to write a compelling letter of intent; and 3) how to use a pre-proposal contact with the funder to increase the change of winning the grant.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
- Identify tools and techniques to use to improve a proposal’s chance of being funded.
- Discuss how to effectively plan and manage a grant proposal.
- Identify common elements for any proposal.
