One of the activities by which nonprofit organizations raise funds is grant writing, which involves creating a written request to receive grant funding from a philanthropic organization. The benefits of learning grant writing skills include increasing or adding to your competencies as an employee, help you make a start at becoming a freelance grant writer or donating your grant writing skills to nonprofit organizations, religious entities and educational institutions to help a cause of your choice secure funding for its programs.
Our one-day Grant Writing workshop meets from 9-4 and is designed to provide you with core competencies in research and planning, persuasive writing, organization and the all-important follow up. Workshops are held at the URI Feinstein Providence Campus, 80 Washington St, Room 329. Free parking at the RI Convention Center.
Grant Writing II: Writing the Grant
Attend a grant writing workshop in which you will actually write your grant. You will receive direction, instruction, encouragement and feedback as you construct a comprehensive, well-written grant.
Required: you must be ready to write! Come in with a specific project, including what you want to do with your grant money, and what materials you will need to do it.
