Is It A Good Match? Learning How to Approach and Write to the Right Funders for Your Project
October 11 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Many grant proposals are rejected because they are not a good match with the grantmaker. Participants will learn how to identify the good match indicators and how to determine a funder’s problem-solving approach, underlying beliefs, and political ideology. Because this information affects what is presented and emphasized in a proposal, grantseekers will discover how to read between the lines and find the “hook” – the connection between one’s project and a prospective funder – and how to write their proposals in a way that the funder can hear.
