Grant Seeking

How to Write Winning Grant Proposals

Price: $119

What do foundations look for in winning grant proposals, and what does it take to rise to the top in an increasingly competitive environment?

Join us for an interactive session in which a successful grant writer we’ll review different elements of proposals submitted for critique by a variety of nonprofit participants and offer constructive feedback on how to make them stronger.

During this 90-minute session, you'll also hear how Andrea Johnson, program officer at Carnegie Corporation of New York, analyzes grant proposals, what she and other program officers look for as they decide which nonprofits deserve support, and how you can develop strong, professional relationships with foundation representatives.

We’ll also share techniques for writing better and more efficiently and show you how to strengthen your case for support.

What Will You Learn?
  • How to speak a grant maker’s language and address key areas of interest.
  • How to write convincingly with passion and logic to capture grant maker’s attention.
  • How to make the most of each element of a proposal, from a compelling statement about the needs your proposal meets, to realistic, measurable outcomes. 
Who Should Attend?
  • Grant-proposal writers
  • Chief development officers, development directors, and fundraisers
  • Executive directors
