County schedules Grant Proposal Writing Workshops
Representatives from nonprofit organizations within Caldwell County interested in developing or improving their grant proposal writing skills are invited to participate in a two-day workshop hosted by the Caldwell County Community Services Foundation. A generous contribution from St. David’s Foundation makes this valuable training available. Workshop topics include:
* Learning how to tap into private foundation funding
* Why it is important to plan for proposal writing
* Basic principles of proposal writing
* Preparing the components of a proposal
* Identifying qualified potential funding sources for your project
Do you have an idea for a project that needs funding support? Would you like constructive feedback on a proposal-in-progress? The workshop instructor is available to provide classroom one-on-one attention to your idea or project.
Dennis Engelke, instructor, has completed professional grant proposal writing training from The Grantsmanship Center in Los Angeles, the nation’s premier grant writing resource. He has successfully written grants for community infrastructure, youth groups, leadership training, animal welfare and social
service projects. He currently serves as Grants Administrator for Caldwell County.
“Grantors fund projects that help people,” Engelke states. “Projects that allow people to do something from which they are now prohibited, or projects that eliminate or reduce hardship, or those that empower people can be successfully funded,” he concludes.
The grant workshops will be offered at the following locations. Attendance will be confirmed on a first-come-first served basis.
