Grant Writing with Nancy Knowles (Age 16+)

April 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Support your favorite nonprofit organization by learning to write a grant! Participants will learn how to gather information typical to writing grant proposals, put together a project description and budget, produce need and rationale language that tugs at funders’ heart strings, and locate appropriate Oregon grant makers. Participants can attend just to acquire skills or can come with an organization and/or project in mind. Participants should bring a laptop and/or other writing materials.
