Have you ever wondered how nonprofit organizations and advocates in Baltimore win grants? Have you thought to yourself, "Why can't I get a share of that money for my cause and my community?" Followed by: "I just don't know where to start!" In this workshop, I won't tell you exactly where to look for funding, but I'll do the next best thing, which is to teach you tricks of the trade so you are ready to compete for the right funding opportunities as they arise. This interactive workshop will take you through the most important basic elements of writing a successful community or arts grant proposal. We will discuss a sample proposal to identify what works, and we'll go over the best strategies for writing a strong grant narrative and a convincing budget. This is a jargon-free zone! You are guaranteed to leave this workshop with a better understanding of what you need to do to write a grant proposal that catches a reviewer's eye.
