Session Description:

A common mistake of many grant proposals is not providing enough information for the funder to truly understand the program. This session will guide attendees on what key program components funders expect to read about in a grant proposal. Using the Kipling method often used in journalism for complete and concise writing, this session will provide a format to gather and write about the information funders need: 1) Who is providing services and who is receiving services? 2) What activities are taking place? 3) When are services provided? 4) Where are activities taking place? 5) Why are these activities effective in addressing the problem? And 6) How do you know the activities are effective?


What you will learn:

  • Core questions program descriptions should answer
  • How to tailor these answers to the space allowed by the grant funder


GPCI Competencies and Skills: 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 4.1, 4.5, 4.6

The trainers for these sessions are all credentialed grant professionals (GPCs) through the Grant Professional Certification Institute and Approved Trainers with the Grant Professionals Association.


Full participation in this program is applicable for 1.0 points in Category 1.B – Education of the CFRE International application for initial certification and/or recertification.

Length: 60 Minutes

Price: $25



Grant Funding Basicsg Series

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.

If you would like to arrange a custom scheduled training for your organization, please email us to speak to one of our Training staff. If you would like information about all our upcoming trainings, please subscribe to our monthly Training Newsletter!
