Bohse & Associates offers a half-day, full-day or 3-day workshops: Grant Writing Made Simple. This intensive workshop allows participants to get hands-on experience in the entire grant writing process, including many practical exercises and individual attention.
Grant Writing Made Simple is a four-part workshop, available as individual modules in half-day sessions or as an intensive 3-day package. Attendees of the 3-day workshop will cover all four grant writing modules in detail.
Participants receive a workshop binder filled with essential information, resources, and samples. Additional resources will be made available depending on the workshop.
Module One--Getting Ready
Participants in our Getting Ready grant writing workshop will do the basic preparation necessary for any successful grant writing effort. Topics include gathering basic information, fund development/fund diversification, cultivating relationships with grant makers and partners, and a review of resources available to grant writers.
Module Two--Show Me the Money!
In our Show Me the Money! workshop, attendees will learn how to write a summary of their funding needs, conduct basic research for funding sources with the best chance of success, and review samples of a foundation’s summary of grants.
Module Three—Numbers Tell the Story
Crunching the numbers can be a daunting task for grant writers, and miscalculations and unsupportable estimates can sink any application. In Numbers Tell the Story, participants will learn how to develop a project budget from start to finish, including identifying personnel requirements, calculating fringe benefits, and examine the differences between foundation, government, and corporate project budgets.
Module Four—Writing the Proposal
In Writing the Proposal, attendees will brainstorm their proposal ideas, discuss who should be on their Dream Team for proposal writing, review the components of a typical proposal, and learn the proper way to package and deliver their finished proposal to the funder. Attendees will also review appealing and appalling grant proposals, and learn how to conduct their own proposal evaluation.
A Grant Writing Toolkit to supplement the workshops is also available in our online store at a deep discount to workshop participants.
