It’s Not as Hard as You Think: Grant Writing for Small Shops and Beginners – 2020 Governor’s Conference on Volunteerism

Presented by Katie Collins, Director of Development, Capitol Center for the Arts

Session Description:

This workshop is geared to the grant writing novice and will provide solid, concrete tips for the entire process, from making that first call to a foundation to writing that final report.  This workshop aims to remove the stigma around grant writing and empower participants with the skills to become successful grant writers.

Session Goals:

Participants in this session will come away with the tools to research, write, edit, and create budgets for competitive grant proposals.
