You have been told that grant writing is now part of your job - feeling overwhelmed? As more and more organizations downsize, diversify their portfolio, and expand job descriptions to include grant writing, it is imperative that the person now tasked with this important role fully understands what this added responsibility entails.
Let’s face it—not every small non-profit can afford a seasoned Grant Professional Certified. Being assigned the task of grant writing as part of an existing job is difficult at best. However, once you acquire the skills, knowledge and success of being a Grant Professional, you will truly embrace the title.
This webinar by Cyndi MacKenzie, Grant Professional Certified, will provide an overview of where to research grant opportunities, what the basic elements of a grant proposal are, where to find training to expand your skills and knowledge base for this new job, and where to get support from other grant professionals as you add this new title to your resume.
Cyndi will share with you her list of funding resources and the same tips she gives her clients about what documents and other organizational policies, practices and standards are needed to be “grant ready.”
