This grant writing workshop is for development professionals who are currently responsible for preparing grant proposals for their organizations or have done so in the past and are looking to refresh their skills. In this popular interactive session, Robert Marovich, author and veteran grant writer with more than 30 years of experience in nonprofit development, will discuss the art and science behind creating competitive grant requests and how to ensure they get the attention of the staff and boards of private and corporate foundations. Along the way, attendees will learn about research resources; the importance of building relationships with foundation officers; how to craft effective goals, objectives, outcomes, and impact statements; how to create an effective project budget and other financial requirements; and how to construct a logic model. There will be discussion about the current grant-making climate, what foundations look for in successful proposals and inquiry letters, and best practices in making an initial personal approach to a foundation.
