The Power of 3 - by Alice Ruhnke

Webinar

Powerof3Does it feel like everyone else is winning grant awards? These three webinars were designed to systematically help your nonprofit organization develop its capacity to write successful grants. The first webinar, Is Your Organization Grant Ready? will help you identify your readiness to be competitive in the grant application process and provide suggestions to increase areas that need additional development. The second webinar, Grant Writing 101, will teach you how to use a comprehensive Program Planning Framework to develop and write strong, impactful, and coherent applications. The third webinar, Logic Models: More than Just Extra Work! will help you develop logic models to measure the change your programs have on participants. These webinars can be taken together to methodically build your organization’s capacity to write successful grants or as stand-alone learning opportunities. Executive directors, program managers, and grant writers from a broad range of human service organizations will benefit from these 90-minute presentations. The deadline to register for all three is January 25, 2018.

Is Your Organization Grant Ready? (NEW)

Almost all nonprofit organizations answer that question with a resounding "Yes--we are ready to get grant money to support the important work of our organization!" However, while most organizations are ready to reap the benefits of grant awards, many have not developed the infrastructure necessary to be competitive in the application process. During this 90-minute webinar, Alice Ruhnke, founder and owner of The Grant Advantage, will guide you through a process so you will be able to:

  • assess your organization's grant readiness through a comprehensive assessment tool that includes organizational structure, programs, finances, partnerships, evaluation, leadership, and more;
  • develop strategies to enhance areas of weakness; and,
  • use your enhanced capacity to write competitive grants.

There will be plenty of time for questions. This webinar will be held on Thursday, January 25, 2018.

Grantwriting 101

If you are new to grantwriting, this webinar is for you! During this 90-minute webinar, Alice Ruhnke, founder and owner of the Grant Advantage, will teach you how to use a Program Planning Framework to plan your grant applications so they tell a strong, consistent story. As we go through the Framework, each section of a typical grant application will be highlighted with information on what funders are looking for and tips on how to write that section. By the time the webinar is over, you will (1) understand what funders are looking for in grant applications; (2) be able to decipher confusing grant-related terminology; (3) have a usable system to connect all the pieces of an application together; and (4) have strategies to infuse your organization's strengths in your proposal to make it strong and competitive. This webinar will be held on Thursday, February 22, 2018.

Logic Models: More than Just Extra Work!

Logic models are not a passing fad. If you need to create a logic model for your program, but don't know where to start, this webinar is for you! Using the Measuring Program Outcomes: A Practical Approach from the United Way of America, Alice Ruhnke will demonstrate why logic models are critical for program planning and evaluation. During this webinar, you will learn how to create and use a logic model to help you improve services and your impact on your community. Executive directors, program managers, and grantwriters from a broad range of human service organizations will benefit from this 90-minute presentation. This webinar will be held on Thursday, March 15, 2018.
