From developing the proposal idea to completing the details of the budget, this workshop provides an outline to use to prepare clear, concise, comprehensive, and competitive proposals. Participants will learn to develop measurable project goals, objectives, and outcomes required in every proposal. Understand what is important to include in grant proposals by creating meaningful content for full proposals, letters of intent/inquiry, and online grant applications as well a post-award reporting.
 
The intended topics covered in this webinar are as follows:
 
• Grants as part of the fundraising plan
• Preparing the proposal idea including SMART goals and objectives
• Outlines for full grant proposals and letters of intent/inquiry
