Grant Writing for Non-Grant Writers: Break it Down to Fund Your Goals – November 11
Nonprofit leaders are constantly seeking ways to fund their core mission and often need outside resources to help them innovate new solutions to the problems they address. Lucky for them, there are hundreds of foundations and other organizations that have money to give away! But getting those organizations to hand over that money usually requires grant writing, which can be an intimidating process and, when done incorrectly, can lead to the dreaded rejection. Learn how to do it right in this four-hour workshop with Judy Dettmer, Executive Director of the Colorado Brain Injury Program. Judy has written dozens of successful grants and has also served on the other side as a funder. Details and registration here.
