MGMT735 - Planning & Writing Grant Proposals

Federal, state and local governments and private foundations have billions of dollars in grant funding to help non-profit organizations carry out their missions. But demand for these resources has increased tremendously in recent years. If an organization is going to compete effectively for the funds it needs, it must develop and carry out a coherent fundraising strategy. Course presentations and exercises cover differences among funding sources, how to research these sources and match a group's mission to a funder's philosophy, and a detailed discussion of how to convert an organization's needs and assets into a successful grant proposal.
