Nonprofit Grant Training

Nonprofit Grant Development

Fundamentals Workshop


Nonprofit Grant Development

This course is not your typical overview of basic grant writing. Instead, we take a precise, targeted approach to showing you how to write a successful grant, one that will stand out to funders. You will learn funding intelligence methods to pinpoint the right grants for your organization and discover essential approaches to develop sound, persuasive proposals that capture reviewers’ attention. Nonprofit Grant Development, a single-day workshop, covers the core knowledge you need to compete for and secure the right funding and successfully achieve your grant goals.

Core Knowledge You Need

You know the pressures of the funding search and challenges of writing detailed and compelling proposals. Time is short and demands are many. You need results—today. Nonprofit Grant Development will cover essential strategies to shorten the distance between your nonprofit and the funding you seek. This course covers key pillars of success:

  • Funding search resources that drill down to your best opportunities
  • Tactics to learn more about funders—what they want and what they don’t
  • Fundamental elements of a strong proposal narrative
  • Language that captures reviewers’ attention
  • Results-driven goals and objectives

Using successful examples, logical outlines, proposal building toolkits, along with discussion and careful feedback, Nonprofit Grant Development will deliver a full day of learning, sharing, and resources that will set you on the path of better grant writing. At the end of the day, you’ll know what it takes to make a truly successful proposal.

Training with Deliverables

Nonprofit Grant Development delivers more than just a day of training, you’ll get a great start on your next proposal. You’ll finish the day with:

  • A solid Executive Summary
