The best pitch wins. Using real cases, demystify the process of creating a winning grant proposal and work though the hard questions facing project proponents as they vie for increasingly scarce grant money, including:

  • How do I find the right funder for my project?
  • How can I craft a strong budget that I won’t regret come reporting time?
  • What kind of value am I delivering and how do I communicate it?
  • What is mission drift, and why is it happening to me?
  • What if a funder just isn’t that into me?
  • What about ethics, optics, and the other things no one told me about the business of raising money?

Participants will leave the workshop with concrete examples of best practices, tools to bring back to work, and some fresh thinking about how, and why, we raise money.
