How To "Do You" In A Grant Proposal

Monday, November 1, 2021
3:00pm - 6:00pm ET

Format: Online
Location: Zoom
Intended Audience: Experienced arts leaders and fundraising professionals who are ready to workshop ways to take their grant writing to the next level.
Participation Level: High - Active participation is key to making the most of this learning-lab-style workshop.

Grant writing is largely about articulating why what we do matters. This three hour learning lab will be focused on how to write grants that successfully make the case for support while staying true to what makes your organization unique. You are encouraged to bring writing from a past (or upcoming) proposal where you have written about your organization's need or case for support. Participants will have the opportunity to workshop new language and to discuss ideas with the instructor and peers. Come ready to write!
