During so many instances in writing a proposal, clients wait to complete budgets until the final task. What if you prepared the budget first? You will see how this makes the process much easier, and informs you for the other aspects of proposal writing.
Budget creation can be a daunting task for clients and for some grant professionals. Join this webinar by expert speaker Cyndi MacKenzie, GPC to understand why creating your budget first will inform your proposal narrative and help focus your attention to details necessary in your need assessments and statements, project objectives, project designs and methods, project narratives, activities, action plans, timelines, project evaluations, future funding or sustainability statements, and appendices. If you are one of those grant professionals who put off the budget to the last task, this session is a must for you. Budget formation will enable you to have the type of conversations that are necessary before you design a proposal, rather than after the fact when valuable time is wasted.
