*This workshop is part of the 2024 Grants & Evaluation Series: Design, Measure, and Fund the Change You Seek

Armed with a clear, compelling program and a plan to measure the performance and outcomes of it, you’re ready to find funding partners whose goals align with your work. How do you ensure that your program and organization is “grant ready”? How can you find grantmakers who are a good match? What makes a good proposal? This workshop will cover all of these topics and more. Participants will leave better able to research, organize, and draft a successful proposal.

Join Callan Brown, Senior Director of Partnerships & Programs for the Nonprofit Center for this workshop and take away practical tools and tips to create your narrative.
