AFP Webinar: 21st Century Grant Applications

train coming down the tracks

Online grant proposals are here to stay. They are frustrating, exasperating and daunting. Still, we often must present our case for support in 2,000 characters (- 350 words or less). Writing tight or to the point while getting the attention of the grant reviewer has never been more crucial. Although brevity is key, grant makers still want engaging narratives that state the issue or problem succinctly while providing evidence that your organization will achieve the proposed outcomes. Knowing what to say and how to say it in a short grant application is the focus of this session. The techniques discussed will help you craft successful paper and paperless proposal narratives. 

Participants will:

  • Learn techniques to present their case in as few words as possible.
  • Identify key elements that will grab grant reviewers’ attention.
  • Edit proposals for strong content.
