This one-day capacity-building program will teach best practices in grant proposal writing.

The goal of the workshop is to help participants strengthen the content of their grant proposals, making it possible to apply for larger grant awards.

The workshop will cover the following:

  • Creating a sustainable fundraising plan – participants will learn how to prioritize fundraising opportunities and align their project goals with those of funders.
  • Explaining the challenge or opportunity – participants will explore using both quantitative and qualitative data to explain the need for their project.
  • Setting measurable goals and outcomes – participants will practice using a logic model to explain how their program will work.
  • Designing monitoring and evaluation plans – participants will work on strengthening their current M&E plans to measure both short-term and long-term outcomes and include the community in the evaluation process.
  • Developing a program budget – participants will practice developing a program budget that accounts for all expenses and includes both volunteer and in-kind support.

Participants should come to the session with a project in mind for which they are currently seeking funding. Participants are also encouraged to bring grant proposals that they have recently written.

The workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Luisa Boyarski, Assistant Director of the Center for Public & Nonprofit Leadership (CPNL) at Georgetown University, Washington, USA.
