*Grant Writing Workshop – Nova Scotia*

*“Seeking Approval” – Successful Grant Proposal Writing Steps and

Grants from institutional sources – government agencies, foundations,
service clubs, associations and the like – are a major revenue source for
charities and non-profit groups striving to jumpstart new programs or
strengthen existing services.  Yet the process of researching granting
sources and developing compelling proposals can be a mysterious and
frustrating quest for many charities.

As challenging as it initially appears, writing and developing effective
and results-oriented grant proposals is a skill area where staff and
volunteers can achieve a significant level of proficiency.  Through this
workshop participants will learn:

   - How to construct a compelling, concise case for support that will
   serve as the template for most institutional grant proposals;
   - How to communicate effectively with the “point people” from granting
   - The differences between traditional granting sources including
   foundations, government agencies and corporate philanthropy programs;
   - About formulating realistic project and operating budgets that meet
   the needs of applicant organizations and satisfy the expectations of
   granting sources;
   - About the importance of setting realistic benchmarks and “indicators
   of success”.
