Course in Grant Writing Basics To Begin on October 26

08/10/2023 10:40 AM | Barbara Cervoni (Administrator)

GPLH Co-President Alison Paul will be teaching a course this fall: “Grant Writing Basics for Nonprofit Organizations.”  Alison has raised millions of dollars over her 30+ year career working with nonprofits and in her grant consulting business.  

The course will be offered through Westchester Community College from 6-9 pm on four Thursdays: Oct. 26, Nov. 2, 9 and 16. It will be held via ZOOM, so you can learn from the comfort of your home.

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.

Participants will learn how to: find funders; understand the components of a strong proposal; write a basic budget; articulate realistic and measurable outcomes; construct evaluation plans. They will also learn 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.
