Securing funding for nonprofit organizations can be extremely competitive. Nonprofits depend on a successful proposal process to produce compelling proposals to achieve their missions. Whether you are a student or working professional, you will benefit from instruction by an experienced grant writer with real-world experience as he/she guides you through the step-by-step processes for state and foundation proposals.
The overall strategic plan for writing grants will be addressed, including the needs statement, mission, goals, objectives, evaluation, key personnel, outcomes, and budgets. During this seven-week certification program, the knowledge specialist will use interactive exercises, lectures, and discussions to demonstrate how to research and write your specific project. This is a fast-paced and intensive course.
