Courses: Grant Writing Basics

Enrollment is limited for each class, but we want to meet all needs; if the class is filled, please register on the waiting list.

This Grant Writing Basics course consists of two (3-hour) online live sessions with many additional resources. Time for interaction with other participants is an important aspect of the class; even experienced grant writers pick up tips and are reenergized after consulting with peers. The course is suited for people who have never written a grant (50% of our audience), as well as those who have a lot of experience and want to take a fresh look at their current practices. This online course is adapted from a highly rated face-to-face training with proven results. More than 2,100 Kansans were trained over five years and found confidence resulting in at least $38 million of successful grants for playgrounds, park improvements, walking trails, building restoration, leadership programs, arts, programming, festivals and other community infrastructure.

Participants are encouraged to bring their grants or grant ideas to share. The format of the class allows a writer to formulate their grant ideas into a grant proposal, if they are ready.

Classes are recorded for later reference or classes missed.

You will learn:
  • Sources of data for community needs
  • Where to find grants
  • Elements of a great grant proposal
  • Practicing the grant elements: Problem, Outcome, Activity, Evaluation, Budget
