Beginners Guide to Grant Writing

The Beginners Guide to Grant Writing (BGGW) program is designed to help beginning and intermediate grant writers learn all aspects of successful proposal development and submission. Much of the two-day program involves practical, hands-on work in developing a grant proposal. A substantial amount of time is spent learning how to find funders as well as how to develop a relationship with them. This program is mainly targeted to those involved with not-for-profit organizations including 501c(3), school, government, church, and others.
