NOW ONLINE – DIY Grant Writing Series Part Three

April 3, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - April 4, 2020 @ 6:00 pm EDT

Grant funding is a great way to support and expand your programs, but it’s a notoriously frustrating and confusing process.

The DIY Grant Writing Program presented by Grants Ink © in collaboration with The Center for Social Change is focused on providing nonprofit and fiscally-sponsored organizations a clear cut practical framework on how to find, acquire, and sustain grant funding that can be put into action right away! When we’re done, grant writing will go from being a stressful and mundane task to an empowering way for you to increase impact and make a real change in your community!

Part One: Overview of the basics of grant research and writing.

Part Two: Overview of grant funding strategy and best practices.

Part Three: Practical application of grant writing and research. In this 2-day, intensive workshop we’re putting pen to paper and giving you the opportunity to craft your own tailored research report, choose a grant to apply for, draft the application, present your case to our “funding board”, and receive real-time feedback on your proposal! The best part is that you’ll have enough completed at the end of the two-day workshop that you’ll be able to submit the proposal for real funding!


Friday, April 3rd | 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Saturday, April 4th | 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM (1-hour Lunch Break)

Registration closes on April 1st!

Active C4SC Members receive 20% off!
