Grant Writing Boot Camp

Date / Time: October 17, 2019 8:30 am
Location: Homewood Suites by Hilton Bozeman, Baxter Lane, Bozeman, MT, USA

In this full-day workshop, participants will learn effective strategies for successful grant writing and leave with new ideas and actual writing samples that can be incorporated in their next grant proposal.

1. The Logic Model
• What is it and why do you need it?

2. Prospect Research
• How do you know who to ask and how much to ask them for?
• How to identify a prospect
• How to qualify a prospect

3. Grant Writing
• How do you present your case and package your proposal?
• Making your case for support: using stories and statistics effectively
• Goals, objectives and outcomes: what’s the difference and how do you write them?
• Evaluation plan: measuring the funder’s ROI
• Pre-submission: getting your grant proposal ready to send

4. Post-Submission
• Actions to take when you get the grant (and what to do if you don’t)

This workshop is designed for beginning and advanced beginning grant-writers, mainly nonprofit staff and volunteers who are writing grants to foundations. (A beginner is someone who has never written a grant; advanced beginners have written a few grants with marginal or no success).

If participants have already identified a foundation, they should bring the funder’s application guidelines to this training. Participants may also wish to bring a laptop for writing exercises.
