Org Toolkit: The Basics of Grant Writing- Research & Vetting

April 25, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-4


Basics of Grant Writing- Research and Vetting
Know how to choose the best potential funders and leave the rest behind! Attendees will already have a basic understanding of grants. In this workshop, we’ll cover best practices when it comes to researching and vetting funders. We’ll take a look at how to find the appropriate funders for your organizations, and we’ll talk about how to best engage your funders. Hands-on activities will help guide you through the research & vetting process. This workshop is ideal for smaller and medium-sized non-profits working through their own grants and who may be in need of support.
