Grants are about so much more than just grant writing. This series of grant trainings will guide you through 1) researching opportunities, 2) building relationships with funders, 3) designing high quality programs, 4) organizational readiness, 5) writing grant proposals, and 6) managing grants. In addition, to guide your continued learning, we have a training to help you decide where you want to grow next based on the career path options available to you.

These sessions are designed to give basic knowledge to a nonprofit professional who is just starting to learn about grants or who has had no formal training in grants. This program breaks the concepts down into manageable pieces that can be learned over time.


Includes the following sections:

  • Describing the Need
  • Describing the Key Components of Your Program
  • Evaluating and Presenting Your Program with Logic Models


You’ll learn: 

  • Why it is important to include data in your grant proposals
  • Specific places to go for data connected to topics, including poverty, hunger, homelessness, health, and more.
  • How to put convey your data into your online applications, considering unique challenges of online formats
  • The Dos and Don’ts of writing your needs statements
  • Core questions program descriptions should answer
  • How to tailor these answers to the space allowed by the grant funder
  • The definition of a goal, objective, and outcome
  • The purpose of evaluation from a funder’s perspective
  • How to use a logic model to ensure your program is measuring what it is intending to achieve
