This workshop will introduce grant-writing to nonprofit professionals who have less than one year of experience with the skill. Many people who work in nonprofits find themselves in the position of “accidental grant-writer” and do not feel fully equipped for the challenge. This session will provide a balance of applicable content and resources to deepen participants’ knowledge of and skills in grant-writing.

Participants will have an opportunity to learn about the basics of grant-seeking. This session will dig into the basic elements of foundation research and grant planning. This is a beginner-level workshop.

Learning Objectives

  • Deepen your understanding about the Minnesota funding landscape.
  • Learn about the types of foundations providing grants to Minnesota’s nonprofits.
  • Develop an understanding of the sections of a grant proposal including budgeting and evaluation.
  • Workshop participants will receive a copy of the Handbook for Successful Grantwriting that covers topics ranging from research and planning to a glossary of commonly used terms. The Handbook is only available to participants and is not otherwise for sale.
Technology Requirements
This training is hosted in Adobe Connect. You will need a computer with a reliable high-speed internet connection to participate in the training. (While Adobe Connect does have a mobile app, its functionality is limited and does not support all the engagement tools that we use during virtual trainings. Therefore, the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits does not recommend using a smartphone or tablet to view the training.)

Audio is available via your computer or your phone; choose the audio connection that provides you with the best sound quality. Please note: Using your computer for audio can sometimes negatively affect your experience, particularly if your Wi-Fi signal is not strong or your broadband connection is slow. Therefore, they highly recommend that you have access to a phone which can serve as a back-up audio method during the training. The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits cannot issue refunds or reschedule the training for you if you are not prepared with a back-up audio method (phone).
