This two-part will workshop will prepare you to put your best foot forward the next time you apply for a grant. In the first-part of the course, we’ll talk about fundraising for your project in general terms and review several key rules that apply to whether you’re applying for a grant, doing a crowdfunding campaign or cultivating individual donors. We’ll also discuss how best to identify potential funders.
In the second-part, we’ll cover the specific components of a proposal, how to convey ideas visually and strike a balance between the big, broad brushstroke ideas and small details that make your project come alive on the page. We’ll look at excerpts from successful grant applications and discuss what makes an effective proposal. The goal of this course is to help you gain confidence in your fundraising and proposal writing abilities and provide you with a solid road map to begin the process.
