Join us for a tactical session to learn strategies for streamlining your proposal writing process. We'll share techniques to make your writing stronger and help you craft proposals that stand out from the competition.
You'll hear from Lynn English, a proposal writer with more than 25 years of experience who has helped local and national nonprofits raise millions of dollars in federal, foundation, and corporate grants. Ms. English also provides training in proposal writing to the grantees of several foundations. During this session, she will share strategies for developing efficient processes for proposal development and overcoming common grant-proposal pitfalls.
You'll also hear from Martha Holley-Miers who, as national director of development for the nonprofit Higher Achievement, has helped the organization triple its operating budget in eight years. She will share examples of how her nonprofit, which recently won a $12-million grant from the U.S. Department of Education, measures and communicates its impact and crafts compelling stories. She'll also share examples of how the group approaches other key elements of a grant proposal including the effective use of data and storytelling.
