This is a hands-on three-hour workshop for community members, program directors, nonprofit staff and leaders in nonprofit businesses. The focus of this presentation will be on nonprofit startups and staff and leadership of existing nonprofits. This seminar is absolutely necessary for anyone planning to write a grant. This is a popular class, so please sign up early.

The focus of this presentation will be on learning the entire process of grant writing and will include lots of networking in a very hands-on collaborative atmosphere. This workshop goes beyond theory and also develops strategy to find the best sources for grants and the key elements of a grant proposal (that you will write). Each participant will complete a simplified grant template modified from the Simplified Grantwriting book published by the speaker Mary Ann Burke through Corwin Press. After completing the grant template, there is the potential for follow-up to complete the grant process or network with other nonprofits. Dr. Burke will also be available to meet class participants after the class for further grant development guidance.
