Observations and advice on grant writing from the other side of the desk

Grantwriting from the ground up

Do you know people who are new to grantwriting? Maybe they’re a volunteer or work for a small, growing organization. Maybe they’re changing careers.

PSGA can help. On Wednesday, October 10th there is a specialized training for new grantwriters. Goodwin Deacon and I will spend the morning helping new grantwriters learn the basics. Think of it as a live overview of our book, Grantwriting for the Genius.

We guide you through the general make-up of an application, helping you see both what funders ask for and why they ask the questions they ask. There will be sections on finding funders, budgets, and creating LOIs…those letters that are often your first chance to introduce a request to a funder.

There’s still some room left for the session, which will be held in the 2100 Building (2100 24th Avenue South in Seattle). For more information and registration, here’s a link: Grantwriting from the ground up
