Grant Writing 101

Grants may be a great way to get your pet project or program off the ground. But is it really as simple as saying, Hey, I am going to write a grant! The answer? Maybe! In this practical, humor-filled session, we will consider whether, when, why, and how to begin writing grant proposals of all sizes. We will cover proposal design, the funder search, and more. Participants will work through grant documents and have time to ask as many questions as necessary.
