Grant Writing Mastery: Win more in 2023
Writing grant and funding applications that are concise, precise, and on point isn’t a matter of luck or a dark art. It’s a method of designing your projects and a skill that you can polish. It’s all about learning how to identify the most important information in any given set of funding priorities, understanding how to respond to them, and developing some key skills around research and structure – whether you’re applying from Arts Council, international funds, commercial foundations, or small family trusts.
In this class we’ll be reviewing:
- The fundamentals of grant writing structure
- How to parse what grantmakers are really looking for
- More effective project budgeting
- Where to expand on your ideas – and where to cut back
- How to address questions about audience, impact, and evaluation
- How to address different funding audiences
