We want you to bring a grant-writing project you are considering to get hands-on experience and get started. Instructor Karl Samp will share his years of experience developing and presenting successful grant applications and provide the tools needed to help you experience that same success.

You will learn:

  • how foundations and grantmakers operate,
  • how to find the most likely grant makers for your projects,
  • what needs to be included in a grant application,
  • how to put your project budget together,
  • how to review and evaluate proposal copy.

Who should attend?

  • those with limited experience in funder research and grant proposal writing.
  • those who need a refresher course in grant-writing basics.
  • executive directors, board and staff members working in nonprofit or government organizations.
