Are you thinking about jumping into federal grants?
Every year the federal government releases millions of dollars to help nonprofit organizations serve their communities. However, federal grants are extremely competitive. The application process is cumbersome and often requires a high level of work investment.
There are two essential ingredients of every successful federal grant proposal: preparation and early planning.
During this webinar, Alice Ruhnke will show you how to research federal funding opportunities and develop the initial strategies needed to craft competitive federal grant applications.
- how to read federal instructions to help you identify ideal funding opportunities;
- the steps needed to write competitive proposals;
- what federal grant reviewers are actually looking for; and,
- the important proposal strategies you must implement before instructions are even released.
You’ll discover that, while challenging, writing federal proposals is truly a “high reward” activity which is often worth the investment as it can help your organization fulfill its mission for years to come.
In order to gain the most from this session, some experience in grant proposal writing is encouraged, but not required.
This webinar is perfect for nonprofit organizations who want to “move up the food chain” from foundation and corporate grants to government grants.
