Designed for both novice and experienced grant seekers alike, the NH Grants Institute is a comprehensive and interactive 3-day workshop—from Tuesday, July 26, to Thursday, July 28—that covers organizational readiness, pre-grant planning, grant identification, strategy, relationship development between grantor and grantee, proposal writing, collaborative grant development, the review process, and forging effective relationships with funders.


Each day of NH Grants Institute will feature a luncheon panel of NH funders, providing an excellent opportunity to network and learn about their priorities and current approaches to grantmaking and sponsorships.

Melissa Nemon, Ph.D. presenting on The Logic Model: An Outcomes-based Approach to Project Design and Planning

Sue Fulton, Chief Financial Officer at Endowment for Health presenting on Building the Grants Budget
