The Institute for Strategic Funding Development’s grant writing workshop is a 3 day course designed to teach the basics of grant writing for industry professionals. It provides a comprehensive overview of effective grant development techniques, including: finding best fit funding sources, creating innovative programs, and planning for funding sustainability. The workshop is great for government, academic, research, health and non-profit professionals new to the grant writing world as well for professionals looking to expand their grant writing knowledge. The workshop will provide an intensive and interactive grant proposal development experience, where you will learn the proposal writing process in its entirety and have great confidence in writing future proposals. As an extra added bonus, you will also be able to develop a draft proposal or have our instructor review one of your existing grant proposals.

The Strategic Grant Writing Proposal Workshop will be presented in 3 sessions:

Strategic Proposal Writing
Preparing a successful written proposal requires an organized, systematic approach to effectively convey your story. It demands disciplined strategies to align your content to what a grant maker is looking for. This workshop provides a step-by-step writing process to deal with any and all application requirements. What’s more, you will learn why proposal writing is much different than other kinds of writing.

Strategic Program Planning
Planning a winning proposal requires developing ideas that are clear, significant and compelling. Your ideas must not only meet the criteria of a grant maker, but they must also demonstrate your in-depth knowledge about a grant maker. Effectively strategizing your proposal idea is what this workshop will emphasize.

Strategic Grant Research
Through interactive exercises, discussions, applicable research assignments and individual consultations, you will learn how to strategically identify appropriate funding agencies. This course will expose you to database applications, online research tools, as well as traditional publications that contain information about multiple grant opportunities. Once identified, you will learn how to initiate contact and cultivate effective relationships with potential grant makers.
