Should you take this course? Anyone with a great cause or idea, but limited  knowledge or experience with grant proposals will benefit from these five sessions. Organizational founders and social entrepreneurs, program managers, managers and staff from state and local government, fundraisers, volunteers and board members will all learn to identify the often-overlooked funder appeal in their everyday activities and new initiatives.

What will you learn? This course will teach you the fundamentals of proposal development and grant writing as expressions of your effective program planning and strategy. We will focus on developing  your program concept into a fundable project and how to frame and present your proposal to maximize your chances of success. Bring your real-life project or  idea to class and let’s make it a competitive proposal together!
