00trainingTags: , , , , , , , ,


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.


*Cost: 1000 including VAT, note that cost includes one on one review time of your grant proposals with the instructor

NGO Catalyst Special Advanced Series for People Already Working in NGOs

Fundraising in the post 2008 financial reality requires a major shift in strategy as simply sending as many grant proposals as possible does not yield success, with many reporting with an average of a 5% – 10% success rate for cold contacts. This course will teach you how to move way beyond grant writing. We will teach how you begin a private major donor program in the Diaspora as well as in Israel and how to keep those donors interested and committed to your cause. The course will focus on creativity in fundraising and how you build a strategic plan that incorporates many different ways to bring income to your NGO. At the end of this series, you will have created the basis of a strategic fundraising plan for your organization. You will be provided with the skills and wisdom of Rachel Canar, the founder of NGO Catalyst, and Shlomit Yarkoni, one of the leading private donor fundraisers in Israel consistently raising millions of dollars and shekels. Combined, Shlomit and Rachel have 40 years of NGO  experience, successes and failures, that provide the basis of the essential lessons in this course.
