Hosted by Minnesota Council of Nonprofits
Many people who work in nonprofits find themselves in the position of “accidental grantwriter” and do not feel fully equipped for the challenge. This session will provide a balance of tools, practice of skills and significant writing opportunities to deepen participants’ knowledge of and skills in grantwriting.
This intermediate-level training is also a hands-on writing clinic, in which registrants will receive feedback from other participants about specific sections of one of their grant proposals as well as have an opportunity to create and/or improve some usable grant content for their organizations.
- Develop grant content for your organization
- Analyze actual grant applications, and recognize successful and unsuccessful strategies
- Receive peer feedback on submitted grant applications and on the content written in the workshop
This session is focused on writing. For a session on the grantseeking process, you may wish to instead register for the Beginning Grantseeking session. This session focuses on the nonprofit funding landscape and the process of seeking grants. MCN also offers Beginning Grantwriting sessions. Visit MCN’s Event Calendar to register.
As this session is part writing clinic, please plan to bring a current grant proposal (or a previous one from your organization) to workshop.
