This writing workshop will review the key components required in all grants and teach the style of writing required for grant proposals which NGO Catalyst calls “distilled”. Specific areas of focus will include: making the case, mission, goals, measurable objectives for evaluation, how and when to use story-telling and more. This class will teach you to write the kind of proposal that the donors want to see and special tricks that make your grant stand out as a winner not a loser. Participants will have the opportunity to write in class, including peer review, and get feedback from the instructor, Rachel Canar, founder of NGO Catalyst. The class will include examples from a wide variety of writers and NGOs and teach how to write clear, well organized and compelling grant proposals.
