Basic Grant Proposal Writing Workshops

For several years now I have been honored to teach nonprofit workshops through the Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County. This year, I will be teaching three sessions of "Basic Grant Proposal Writing" on:
We pack a lot of information into these sessions, but they're always lots of fun, with about 12-15 people attending per session.

We start with a quick review of the charitable giving landscape, then move on to:
  • Building your case for funding:
    • Understanding your organization's assets
    • Clarifying your Mission
    • Knowing what story you're telling
  • Writing a successful grant proposal:
    • Types of proposals/submissions
    • The standard components, section by section
      • Focus on Outcomes!
    • Putting the proposal together and submitting
  • After the Proposal - Next Steps
The workshops are held at the Community Foundation's building on Soquel Drive in Aptos, right off Highway 1. If you're in the Monterey Bay area, or even Silicon Valley and want a day near the ocean, click on the dates above to register, or click here to see the full workshop schedule.
