Please join The Nonprofit Partnership and The Erie Community Foundation's Community Impact Team on Thursday, September 5, 2019 from 9:00 to 11:00 AM for, "Grant [RIGHT]ing: Strategies for Success with The Erie Community Foundation."

The Erie Community Foundation's Community Impact Team will briefly introduce ECF’s various grant programs and guidelines, the grant application and review process, and the post-grant evaluation report. The bulk of this workshop will be focused on crafting the best request and examining key components of the application, including:

  • A Pulitzer-prize worthy Executive Summary
  • Making the Case – providing evidence for your program and/or intervention
  • Decoding the proposal budget

And don’t just take our word for it – hear from a panel of past grantees whose stories of funded projects provide a blueprint for success, attainable for any nonprofit organization.

The learning objectives for this workshop include:

  • Understand the Foundation’s grant programs and guidelines
  • Understand how to craft a strong, needs-focused request and how to strengthen your application by using evidence of your program and/or intervention’s success
  • Learn how to write a clear, concise executive summary (in 1,000 characters or less)
  • Understand how to have your community impact clearly described such that the outcomes are measured and inspiring
  • Understand the VALU in self-eVALUation reports

This event is geared towards any nonprofit professional that wants to learn more about the Foundation's grant programs and process. This could include administrators, fundraisers/development staff, program staff or communications/marketing staff.
