From start to finish, your proposals must tell a strong, consistent story.

However, accomplishing this across the unique sections of an application is not always straightforward. Grantmakers make it even more challenging by using different terms that often mean the same thing.

When you’re new to proposal writing, it can feel like an overwhelming task, but it’s important to remember that you don’t have to be perfect to begin your proposal writing journey! It is a skill that you will develop and refine over time.

During this webinar, Alice Ruhnke will walk you through a systematic process to apply to all your grantseeking efforts in order to reduce the stress related to proposal writing.

She’ll introduce a planning tool that can be used again and again by your organization, saving you time and energy in your grantseeking efforts.

This webinar will help you:

  • understand the essential sections that comprise 95% of all grant applications;
  • navigate confusing grant-related terminology so you understand what funders really want;
  • discover the best practices on how to write each section;
  • use a Program Planning Framework to connect all the pieces of an application together; and,
  • develop strategies to infuse your organization's strengths in your proposal to make it even more competitive.

This webinar is perfect for beginners, but grant proposal writers with limited experience will also walk away with new insights and resources.
