Creating a Fundable Grant Proposal

September 26, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Do you have an idea or program that would be perfect for grant funding...but you're unsure about how to apply for a grant?

Join Alliance for Girls and Alliance member and consultant Renee Rubin Ross for a hands-on workshop where you'll learn concrete steps to move your idea to a grant proposal or letter of inquiry.

At this workshop, we will focus on a basic framework for creating a letter of inquiry or proposal, including:

  • Program development
  • A compelling need statement
  • Goals and objectives

This workshop is great for nonprofit professionals and development staff with beginner to intermediate knowledge of grant writing.

Lunch will be provided.
