Grant Writing 101

May 21, 2019 @ 9:00 am 3:00 pm

This workshop is designed for those who are newer to grant writing or have written grants with limited success. This workshop will cover how to research grant opportunities, what your organization must have in place before writing a grant, the primary components of a grant proposal and how they fit together, and how to communicate effectively with prospective funders.

If you have a grant program that you think would be a good fit for your organization, please bring a copy of the grant program description and requirements. Also, if you have an unsuccessful grant application that you would like feedback on, please bring both a hard copy and an electronic copy on a flash drive. Please bring a computer with you if you can.

$25 per person (Lunch, drinks and snacks included). No refunds. You do not want to miss this opportunity!  Space is limited to 35 people from the New River Valley.
