Join us for a Social Impact Institute: Learning Lab workshop, “Grants 101: Grant Writing, Grantor Research, and Program Evaluation,” where we will demystify the grant-seeking process. From proposal narratives to budget forms, from outcome measures to funder relationships, we will cover the all the basics you need to know to submit quality grant proposals to potential funders (and, properly manage your grants once received). Sapna Hencinski, a Candid Foundation Directory Online Expert, will also demonstrate the Foundation Directory Online, a local resource provided by the Community Foundation that is available to local nonprofits seeking grant funding.

Portions of this training will be interactive and include small group discussions – attendees are encouraged to be prepared to participate by both audio and video for optimal experience.
