Fundraisers Forum: Grantwriting

Have you ever wondered: "Can I get a grant for that?”
If yes, then this session is for you!

Join fundraising pro Rebecca Garrett for an interactive grantwriting workshop to see how it’s done.

Come with your own grant proposal idea — whether it’s a project that’s been in the works for years or a concept you just dreamed up. Together, we’ll walk through the essential components of your proposal and learn pro tips to make it stand out from the crowd. You’ll even have the opportunity to collaborate and brainstorm with other grant seekers as you begin to implement your newfound skills!

Whether you’ve worked on grants before or are considering submitting your very first proposal, this is an opportunity not to be missed! You’ll leave the workshop with new professional contacts, a refined pitch for your project, and a grantwriting guide you can put into action at your own organization.
