Non-Profit Series: Grant-Writing 101 w/Bettie Murchison

Workshop / Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center

Grant Wars: How to Win a Seat at the Table

Grantwriting involves many steps. An agency must conduct an internal review of policies and procedures as well as have buy in from the board of directors. This workshop will be a two-part series that explains grantwriting topics.

Part I – Feb. 28, 2019

The recipe for a successful grant includes: Statement of need, Goals and objectives, Project Activities, Evaluation Plans, Organizational Information and Attachments. This workshop will discuss these different elements of a grant as well as where to look for start up funding.

Part II  Mar 28, 2019

This workshop will review the elements in Part I and the group will work on developing these elements for their own agency. The trainer will provide individual and group feedback on the proposals they are preparing. There will be opportunities to partner with more experienced agencies to seek joint funding opportunities.

*We strongly encourage participants to attend both workshops of the series.
