Grant Writing – Part 2: Grant Writing 200

October 25 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


  • Know how to craft letters of inquiry and grant proposals based on what foundations look for in a competitive request
  • Have the confidence to approach private and corporate foundations to discuss their organization and program
  • Receive constructive feedback on their proposal and letter

This hands-on workshop is for individuals who have attended Grant Writing – Part 1: Skills and Secrets in the past and/or have been performing grant writing duties for some time and want to make their letters and proposals more competitive.

In addition to providing participants with advanced tips and techniques, this 200 course will feature a presentation from a foundation officer about the current grant-making climate, what foundations look for in successful proposals and inquiry letters, and best practices in making an initial personal approach to a foundation.

Participants who wish to have their grant writing work reviewed are asked to bring one sample proposal and one sample letter of inquiry with them to the workshop. A major portion of the second half of the day will be dedicated to a public review of individual work and ways to enhance the persuasive elements of these letters and proposals.
