This might be a bit nerve-racking at first, but with the proper preparation, it can be extremely rewarding.

Friday - Lesson 06

Research, relationship-building, phone contacts, organizing—does it all rest on the shoulders of one grant writer? Happily, the answer is no!

It's so important to know how to present yourself, your organization, and your proposed program effectively. So this lesson will explore the elements of two all-important letters: the letter of inquiry and the letter of request.

You'll also learn how to ask for the right grant amount and how to overcome any fears you may have about asking for support.

Friday - Lesson 08

Friday - Lesson 10

What happens to your proposal after you apply for a grant? If you've ever wondered about this, in this lesson you'll discover all the hoops it goes through once it reaches the program officer's desk. If your application should be declined, you'll see how to turn that into an opportunity for future success. And if your proposal should be accepted, you'll learn about the essential thank-you letter, how to put together the final report, and how to acknowledge and provide benefits to the funders supporting your program efforts. You'll also understand how crucial it is to diversify your funding base!

Week Six

Wednesday - Lesson 11

In this lesson you'll learn about the A to Z of creating business (for-profit) and individual artist proposal packages. You'll also get some important tips and techniques for putting together proposals for government funding sources, which, as you can imagine, will be more complicated and much lengthier than proposals to foundations, corporations, or individual donors.
