These workshops are specifically designed for nonprofit organizations in need of starting new funds development initiatives, those organizations and groups in need of enhancing existing organizational funds development activities or for nonprofit staff and volunteers interested in expanding their grants development skillsets.
Nikki Kirk, Freelance Grant Proposal Writer and federal grants reviewer said, “Funders have raised the bar in selecting and awarding grants to high-quality programs and projects. Because there are fewer unrestricted funds available to charities to hire full-time development staff, and limited capacity-building funding opportunities for the nonprofit community as a whole, it’s become more important than ever to teach community-based and public service organizational staff, volunteers, and board members how to properly develop, write, and submit successful grant proposals. Many funds development personnel don’t speak and understand the various funding resources languages. Kirk’s Consulting Services break down those barriers. We have written successful grant proposals, and we have made decisions regarding grant application worthiness at some of the highest-levels of government for a number of federal agencies.”
During the one-day Introduction to Grant Proposal Writing & Funding Research Workshop events, attendees will learn the foundational frameworks of grant readiness, understanding request for proposals (RFP’s), funding opportunity announcements (FOA’s) and notice of announcements (NOA’s), the differences between fundraising and grant writing, and basic grant proposal development.
