About the Program:

Grant Writing 101: Nuts and Bolts of Successful Grants will teach the fundamentals of grantsmanship to help participants
write and manage successful grants. The class will encompass a five-step program including the following components:
         1. Identifying needs and projects;
         2. Identifying foundation grant makers;
         3. Writing successful grant proposals;
         4. Cultivating grant makers; and
         5. Accountability.

The presenter will invite questions throughout the presentation and participants will engage in an exercise to identify the best
foundation prospects for an identified project. All participants will receive a copy of the author’s book titled, “Let’s Write a
Grant,” a $50 value and take-home guide for writing future proposals.

Upon completion of the class, participants will be able to (1) identify the five-step grantsmanship process, (2) research
prospects to identify the best funding sources for their schools and projects; and (3) write a foundation grant proposal utilizing a
standard format.
