Course Description

What makes an effective grant proposal? The data? The charts and graphs? Yes, along with an effective narrative that tells your story and identifies the statement of need. In this training, we will dive into components that make a compelling story and how to leverage this for an effective grant writing strategy.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to...

  • make data and statistics come to life - provide a picture of the people that funding will impact.
  • communicate their personal story effectively and to a targeted audience.
  • share their stories in a way that allows the funder to be the "hero/shero."
