This workshop will introduce grantwriting to nonprofit professionals who have less than one year of experience with the skill. Many people who work in nonprofits find themselves in the position of “accidental grantwriter” and do not feel fully equipped for the challenge. This session will provide content and resources to deepen participants’ knowledge of and skills in grantwriting.
Participants will have an opportunity to learn about the basics of grantseeking. This session will dig into the basic elements of foundation research and grant planning. This is a beginner-level workshop.
- Deepen your understanding about the Minnesota funding landscape.
- Learn about the types of foundations providing grants to Minnesota’s nonprofits.
- Develop an understanding of the sections of a grant proposal including budgeting and evaluation.
Workshop participants will receive a copy of the Handbook for Successful Grant Writing that covers topics ranging from research and planning to a glossary of commonly used terms. The Handbook is only available to participants and is not otherwise for sale. It will be mailed one week before the training to registered participants; those who register less than one week before the training will receive their handbook after the training concludes.
This virtual training will be offered twice in 2019: February 27 and June 27. It is also offered as an in-person training. Please visit the Fundraising Trainings page to register for a different date.
