FND 205 | Writing Winning Grants

This is an Intermediate Course within Nonprofit University's
Development Institute.

Grant writers must consider both the practical and conceptual aspects of a competitive grant proposal: Great proposals focus on the funding agency or agencies (be they federal, private, or corporate) and include the “extras” that make the difference between success and failure.

What You'll Learn

After this course, you'll be able to:

  • Position their organization to be competitive through strong writing and thorough understanding of highly effective grant content.
  • Research statistics that illustrate the problem statement.
  • Structure and write letters of inquiry, proposals, and applications for foundation and government grants.
  • Prepare a clear and compelling budget justification.
  • Find information resources to help in writing grants.
