*Proposal Writing Boot Camp Virtual Workshop
Event Category 

$525 until October 11; $695 starting October 12

This session follows the October 19 orientation and is the second of three workshop sessions. The two remaining sessions meet November 2 and November 9 for two-hours each day. 

The focus of this session is structuring the proposal and letter of inquiry. 

Learn the essential knowledge and skills to develop effective foundation grant proposals. You will connect with expert Candid trainers and peers to learn the practical skills needed to: build the key components of a competitive grant proposal to a foundation, develop a well-organized budget, and identify a targeted list of foundation funding prospects. You will be encouraged to approach your proposal from the funder's perspective and to think critically about what makes a compelling pitch. To accommodate diversity in learning styles, the three weeks are grounded in project-based learning and include individual writing time, self-paced e-learning, live virtual lectures, and small group discussions and peer activities. 

We encourage you to prepare for class by identifying a project for which you would like to seek foundation funding. The workshop will include opportunities to draft a logic model and letter of inquiry that you can use to pursue funding for this project. 

Candid Learning has designed the 3-week course to be equivalent to the 3 days of time spent together during our in-person Proposal Writing Boot Camp. As such, you should plan to invest a total of 6 to 8 hours per week on the course.
