Writing a grant can be a time-consuming, hair-yanking experience with a hit-or-miss outcome.  Yet so often board members or executive directors believe that “getting a grant for that” will be the answer to your nonprofit’s financial needs.

How can you make sure that your grant writing efforts are strategic and effective? How does it carry out the initial approach to a foundation? What should you do if your proposal is rejected? Accepted? 

This three-day workshop will cover grant writing from research to writing to stewarding the relationship with your funders. We’ll spend time on the different kinds of foundations, organizational readiness and pre-grant planning, the nuts and bolts of writing the proposal, budgets, logic models, thinking strategically about what a funder is looking for, evaluating outcomes, and grant writing as an organization-wide responsibility.

This workshop is perfect for novice or intermediate grant-seekers.

Workshop participants will learn from experts in the field and hear from the funders themselves how to make the most of the opportunity to win grants.

Luncheon panels provide an excellent opportunity to network with NH funders, including…
