Effective Grant Writing (7/14/09)

Austin Community College

Highland Business Center

Room 201

5930 Middle Fiskville Road

Austin TX 78752 USA


Brief Overview:

A one-day complete “nuts and bolts” guide to grant proposal development and management of critical proposal development processes. Participants will develop a detailed outline of a full grant proposal and develop logical and compelling narrative and spreadsheets in the challenging sections of needs assessments, objectives, evaluation and budget. Participants will also develop strategies for researching, cultivating, communicating, and building partnerships with foundation, corporation, and government funders.

Additionally, the workshop will cover “important yet rarely-discussed” topics such as writing and editing styles, expectations and measurement of a successful grant writing program, the relationship of grants to overall organizational fundraising, the role of management and volunteer leadership in grant-development initiatives, and organizational team-building to support grant proposal development. Comprehensive handouts and online resources are provided.

This workshop has been highly rated as effective for both the beginner and advanced grant-writer, because of the unique perspectives provided by the presenter.
