Five Steps to Writing a Stronger Grant Proposal
- Duration: 75 minutes
Join The Chronicle of Philanthropy for a 75-minute session that will help you understand how to write each element of a compelling grant proposal.
Martin Teitel, a former foundation chief executive and author of The Ultimate Insider’s Guide to Winning Foundation Grants, will give you tactics you can use right away to write clear, concise, and compelling proposals.
Learn why your proposal can live or die by the executive summary — and how to write one that places your proposal at the top of a program officer’s list.
You’ll also get tactics for writing a stronger case for support by presenting a pressing problem along with your organization’s ability to contribute to its solution.
In addition, Mr. Teitel will show you how to frame the financial section of your request to reassure grant makers that your program goals align with fiscal realities. And throughout the session, he will evaluate portions of sample proposals, so you can see and learn from real-world examples.
Those who registered before Thursday, March 30th were entered to win one of 5 free copies of his book, The Ultimate Insider’s Guide to Winning Foundation Grants.
