Getting Grants! is an interactive workshop that provides an overview of the process to identify grant prospects and prepare competitive grant proposals. It is appropriate for nonprofit staff/board members new to development, or anyone who has an interest in developing skills to secure grant funding on behalf of 501(c)3 organizations, government agencies, or education institutions. The workshop emphasizes program and operating grants. Participants learn core grant skills that include identifying appropriate grant funding sources, recognizing the most crucial components of a proposal and how they fit together, and understanding the grant proposal review process. Participants also learn strategies to write proposals with a progression of logic aligned with funder interests. Following the workshop, the trainer will provide each participant with up to one hour of one-on-one technical assistance in proposal writing.

This event is sponsored by the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, Rochester Area Foundation, Rochester Chamber of Commerce, and the Rochester Nonprofit Consortium.
