Course in Grant Writing Basics To Begin on October 26

08/22/2022 1:41 PM | Barbara Cervoni (Administrator)

GPLH Co-President Alison Paul will be teaching a virtual course this fall through Westchester Community College: “Grant Writing Basics for NonProfit Organizations” will be offered via ZOOM from 6-9 pm on four Wednesdays: Oct. 26; Nov. 2, 9, 16. Alison has raised millions of dollars over her 30+ year career working with nonprofits and in her grant consulting business.  

Class Description

The course is ideal for those new to grant writing or those who work for a nonprofit and want to increase their skill set. Learn to write a grant to support a nonprofit’s mission and goals.

The course will include how to: find funders; understand the components of a strong proposal; write a basic budget; articulate realistic and measurable outcomes; construct evaluation plans. It will also address how to get started as a grant writer.  

The course is interactive. It will include many sample grants to review as well as access to a wealth of resources. The final project is a short letter proposal. We will read all proposals and then, in a friendly, constructive way, participants will vote yay or nay on funding – so you’ll experience being a grant reviewer as well.

GPLH Board Member John Scuderi took this course and recommends it highly: “Alison is a knowledgeable, patient teacher who skillfully and expertly covers a lot of course material in a short amount of time. Over the course of just four sessions, she provided our class with an overview of the grant writer's role that went a long way toward preparing me for the full-time Grant Writer position I now hold. I strongly recommend Alison's course to anyone who is interested in grant writing, whether you are making a career change or just want to expand your knowledge.”
