Meeting Description:
Are you new to grant writing? This free webinar for TechSoup's audience (normally $89!) will help you prepare the basic documents needed to write compelling letters of inquiry and grant proposals.
Participants come away with a clear picture of exactly what documents they should have at hand and how to polish and present these documents in order to submit successful grants requests. Why not make your first grant proposals not only a joy to write, but also make them stand out from other submissions?
Cynthia M. Adams, CEO of GrantStation, has been teaching grant writing workshops for over 20 years, and presents a webinar full of "how to's" and "examples" for the novice grant writer.
Participants will receive several handouts/worksheets before the webinar to help guide their success. Register today to receive the materials ahead of the event.
