Introduction to Grant Writing
A three-day intensive workshop to build grant writing skills for organizations and agencies in the Sierra Nevada region.
Why? The Sierra Nevada Conservancy (SNC) looks to the organizations, agencies, and local governments in the Region to help achieve its vision for the future: “the magnificent Sierra Nevada Region enjoys outstanding environmental, economic, and social health, with vibrant communities and landscapes sustained for future generations.” You are our partners and we want to help you obtain funding to achieve these goals!
Who should attend? Community, nonprofit, and local government representatives who would like to learn how to prepare effective grant applications. This workshop is geared to the beginning (no experience) and intermediate (moderate grant writing experience) levels. Participants must be located in (or working in) the Sierra Nevada Conservancy Region.
What will be covered? The workshop will cover the basics of grant writing and program development, including:
- How to make your application as competitive as possible
- Basic program development for effective grant writing
- The eight standard parts of a grant application
- How to create a work plan and budget spreadsheet
This will be a small, interactive class. Participation and writing will be required. Come prepared to discuss a real project that you would like to fund and to write about it. Individual assistance will be provided on writing assignments.
