CSAC Institute – Grant Seeking and Grant Writing Basics (387)
Successfully connect with foundations for funding innovative programs
New class! Do you want to learn how the funding research process works, and what tools and resources are available? This course provides a policy-level introduction to grant seeking and grant writing. It examines grant sources for counties, how to partner for grants, and policies for seeking and managing grants. The class will cover: what you need to have in place before seeking a grant; the world of grantmakers; the grant seeking process; and available tools and resources. Participants examine what to include in a proposal to a foundation, tips for making a proposal stronger, what funders expect to see in proposals, and tips for communicating with funders during the grant process.
