An intensive strategic and technical skill building experience

Designed for both novice and experienced grant seekers, the NH Grants Institute  is a comprehensive, interactive workshop that covers organizational readiness, pre-grant planning, grant identification, strategy, relationship development between grantor and grantee, proposal development, collaborative grant development , the review process, evaluation and forging effective relationships with funders.

Day 1:  Developing a Smart Approach to Grant Seeking

Day 2:  The Nuts and Bolts: Writing the Proposal

Day 3:  Evaluation, Sustainability and Collaboration

The Institute will include hands-on activities, panel presentations with local and regional grant makers, expert grant writers, and individuals who have reviewed countless proposals.
