Drawing from his 14 years’ experience, Kenny Weill will lead attendees through the process of writing a clear, concise, and compelling foundation grant narrative. This includes both the longer “full proposal” narrative and the shorter concept paper or letter of inquiry. He will end with tips to avoid common pitfalls, and key components of a strong proposal.
Participants will have the tools necessary to tell their organization’s and program’s story in a narrative that will be compelling to funders.
This workshop will cover:
- Importance of the needs statement.
- Importance of including measurable objectives and outcomes.
- Importance of differentiating your organization and/or program from all others
- What to include in a logic model that will prepare you to write a grant proposal
- What to include in the Statement of Need
- The difference between outputs and outcomes
- How to craft S.M.A.R.T. objectives
- How to tie in outcomes with the evaluation
By the end of the session, participants will be able to craft all sections of a compelling grant proposal including:
- Organization background
- Target population
- Statement of need
- Goals and S.M.A.R.T. objectives
- Activities and outputs
- Outcomes and evaluation
This session is ideal for leaders, board members and development staff of small- to mid-sized organizations.
