This introductory class is for those new to grant writing. The focus is on writing grants to support programs, capital projects and operations at nonprofit organizations and businesses (not college grant applications). Participants will learn basic skills needed to find and write compelling foundation, state and federal grants.
Topics will include: 1) How to find grant opportunities; 2) Preparing information commonly asked for in grant applications; and 3) Tips for winning grant applications. Assignments will be given for each week of class to enhance the participants’ skills in grant writing. Participants can come to class with a project idea that is in need of grant funds.
This class meets on three consecutive Mondays: January 23, 30 and February 6 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
