Many grant applications require a logic model. And why not, logic models have tremendous value and are incredibly useful. They are one of many tools that you should use to organize your entire grant proposal. Do you want to run, or do you embrace this fact? Once you overcome your fear of them, they will become easier to fill out and use, to organize your grant proposal!
Let Grant Professional Certified Cyndi MacKenzie show you how to use your logic model to build your grant proposal, to frame your project activities, to enhance your evaluation methods and to prove you are effective. As you know, objectives should be clear and leave no room for interpretation. Logic models help you to state your goals in SMART format: specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-bound. All this from one piece of paper!
With this session, you will learn to use logic models to develop proposals built around meaningful, measurable outcomes. You will also get the opportunity to construct a logic model for a federal grant during the session. You will learn ways to use your logic model outside of the grant application itself: in the BOD room, with other potential funders, in case statements, and with staff. You will get handouts which will include sample logic model formats.
