Grant Writing

A grant is one of the ways the government funds your ideas and projects to provide public services and stimulate the economy. According to Charity Navigator, $50 billion is awarded through foundations and corporate grants every year. Grants support critical recovery initiatives, innovative research, and many other programs listed in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA). Though they do require preparation, grants allow many people to pursue projects they wouldn’t have had the chance to pursue otherwise.

Grant Writing

The Grant Writing Introduction class helps you understand how to properly position the need your project plans to fill within your community. It will cover a step-by-step plan for writing a grant, from concept, to research to a viable letter of inquiry. The instructor will also guide you through techniques for clear and concise writing, presentation, and use of appropriate agency. The class is designed to take the guesswork out of grant writing and help you get started with helping organizations reach their financial goals.
