Rick Levine, one of the Northwest’s most expert grant writers, will guide you through the ins and outs of grant research, proposal development, and funder relationships. This workshop will present a panel of foundation and corporation representatives who weigh in on how to most effectively present your case in this highly competitive grant-seeking climate. You’ll learn strategies that give your applications an edge, and gain a deeper understanding of the latest trends and changing foundation and corporation philanthropic priorities and interests.

Learn:

  • What makes a “grantable” idea
  • Funder types and interests
  • How to frame your proposal so it will get the most positive response
  • Strategies to identify potential funders and build relationships with them
  • Project and organizational factors that most influence grant decisions
  • How to write an effective proposal

Who Should Attend?

“Foundation and Corporate Grant Strategies” is designed to provide grant seekers with solid basics for grant research and proposal writing, as well as to update and inspire experienced grant seekers.

Participant Comments

“Rick was really fantastic at giving relevant information and was always eager to hear feedback and questions from us. I really enjoyed the workshop as well as got a lot out of it. It motivated and inspired me to seek out grants.”

“I was very impressed both with our instructor and with my fellow attendees. All too often, workshops lack focus or simply don’t provide the meaningful knowledge that I am seeking. Neither of these was the case for this workshop. If this was characteristic of all NAO workshops, my only suggestion would be to keep it up.”
