Writing Effective Grants: Making Your Proposal Stand Out

A nonprofit professional’s ability to locate, propose and obtain grants is essential for organizations in most industries, including government, nonprofit, foundation, education, public health and social work.  This session will provide information, tips and a better understanding on grant writing and proposal development. Professionals will also have the opportunity to participate and ask questions about the competitive world of grants and how to gain a competitive edge in the industry.
