Join us for a tactical 90-minute webinar that offers sound techniques for writing stronger proposals. Designed for those with grant-writing experience who are looking for more strategic approaches to proposal writing, this webinar builds on our 2014 basic sessions.
YouÕll hear from Michael Wells, principal consultant of Grants Northwest, who will share two forms to help you streamline the writing process, sharpen your focus, and produce a more powerful proposal. HeÕll explain how a Òlogic modelÓ can help you to:
- More clearly define your project.
- Gain input from key staff.
- Identify other organizational resources that will augment a grant.
- Build a framework for designing your evaluation.
YouÕll also hear directly from Kim Thomas, program officer at Meyer Memorial Trust and former official at Oregon Food Bank, who will share insights into a grant makersÕ decision-making process. SheÕll stress the importance of tying a grant to your mission and fitting it into a larger revenue plan.
Our experts also will explain how to bolster your case for support by conducting a Òbefore and afterÓ exercise to help determine a grantÕs impact on an organizationÑits budget, staff, and ability to expand services, among other thingsÑso you can present a more detailed and compelling case for support to the grant maker.
