Beginner Grantwriting: Getting Started
The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits is hosting “Beginner Grantwriting: Getting Started:”
“This workshop will introduce grantwriting to nonprofit professionals who have less than one year of experience with the skill. Many people who work in nonprofits find themselves in the position of ‘accidental grantwriter’ and do not feel fully equipped for the challenge. This training will provide content and resources to deepen participants’ knowledge of and skills in grantseeking.
Participants will have an opportunity to learn about the basics of grantseeking. This session will dig into the basic elements of foundation research and grant planning. This is a beginner-level workshop.
In this training, you will:
- Deepen your understanding about the funding landscape;
- Learn about the types of foundations providing grants; and
- Develop an understanding of the sections of a grant proposal including budgeting and evaluation.
Workshop participants will receive a digital copy of the Handbook for Successful Grant Writing that covers topics ranging from research and planning to a glossary of commonly used terms. The Handbook is only available to participants and is not otherwise for sale.
This session is an introductory overview of the grantseeking process. For a session focused on writing, you may wish to instead register for the Intermediate Grantwriting session.”
