Grant writing 201: Secrets of the Experts

Have you written grants before, but they were not as successful as you’d hoped? Have you written successful applications for small foundations, but now you’d like to tackle bigger proposals?

JVA has over 27 years of grantwriting expertise, and we want to share our trade secrets with you. Each year, we write a slew of proposals that help our clients secure millions in grant funding; through funder panels, client work and community involvement, we have developed great working relationships with foundations; members of our team served on the committee that revised the Colorado Common Grant Application; and members of our grant writing team have served as grant reviewers. We have rolled all of this experience into one great class that will help you hone your grant writing skills, adding skills to resume and building your organization’s capacity.

In this training, you will learn:

  • Top things to look for when reviewing a funder’s guidelines, and the steps you should be taking before you write your proposal
  • Common reasons grants are not funded, and ways to avoid these mistakes
  • The logic behind common questions funders ask
  • How to balance left-brain and right-brain information to create a more compelling appeal
  • And more!

This class is recommended for individuals with prior grant writing experience. If you are new to grant writing and would like help with grant writing basics, check out our Write a Grant in a Day©.
