Take the mystery out of grant writing in this content-rich course designed to dramatically improve your grant writing skills. You'll learn how to research potential funders, analyze their requirements, and assemble the components of grant proposals essential to receive funding, as you work on an actual grant application. You'll also gain the tools to write a compelling narrative, create a project budget, and provide accurate reporting so that funders say "yes" again and again. Bring to class a project or nonprofit you want to support, and be prepared to write outside of class. Instructor Virginia Lang has written, reviewed, and administered hundreds of successful grants over the past 35 years.
