A Public Service Executive Leadership Collaborative Workshop

The success of any nonprofit or government organization is contingent on its mission, vision, governance, ability to run quality programs and most importantly on its ability to raise funds. Organizations with the knowledge, skills and expertise to seek out and successfully win grants are more likely to thrive in this increasingly competitive funding environment.  This session will help you better understand how to identify grant opportunities and develop winning proposals.  Attendees will have the opportunity to practice grant-writing skills based on practical examples from their organizations or experiences.  

What will you learn?  

This session will provide vital information about how to approach grant writing in today’s competitive environment. You will gain an understanding of how to research and identify appropriate grant opportunities, develop strategies for approaching the grant writing process, and learn how to develop compelling responses to each component of the proposal. We’ll use real life examples to help you practice proposal writing for your organizations so that you’ll be better prepared to deliver compelling and winning proposals.

Includes a 30 minute break.
