Successful Grant Writing

Successful Grant Writing

Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in #202 J.C. Penney Conference Center (on the UMSL north campus)

In the highly competitive world of grants, learn the art and science of creating excellent grant applications.  Share perspectives and embrace practical examples that will give you an edge in writing proposals and obtaining funding. You will leave this interactive session with tools and techniques you can put to immediate use as you seek funds from the private sector.  Hands-on activities will be more meaningful if you come to class with a project in mind - it can be for any project at any amount.  From the initial research to thanking the donor, this comprehensive session is good for beginners and seasoned grantwriters alike.  The class will also explore the growing area of Donor Advised Funds and their potential impact on foundation giving. 

Instructor Wendy Dyer has enjoyed working with hundreds of nonprofits over the last 23 years as a consultant, from north to south and throughout the Midwest. She has helped pump millions of dollars into the economy – expanding programs and building schools, health centers and cultural places - bringing opportunity to thousands of people. A frequent presenter and trainer, Wendy encourages agencies to find their “sizzle” and embrace her mantra that “People are giving money away, anyway, might as well be to you.”

Registration fee: $99

Lunch is included (in the form of a voucher for use in the student center).
