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 essential documents, 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 look at private and public funding and how they work. 

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.

"I have worked with Pat professionally for many years. As we all know, you only chose to work with someone again and again when you know that what you need done will actually get done, and get done well! Pat has an uncanny ability to ask the right questions at the right time. She brings a clarity of purpose to almost any task. She is one of those rare individuals who isn't afraid to ask the tough questions. I admire her, and the work she does, greatly."
