Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Century Room C of the Millennium Student Center (on our UMSL north campus – please note different building than most of our workshops).
In the highly competitive world of grants, learn the art and science of creating excellent grant applications. Share perspectives and embrace practical examples that will give you an edge in writing proposals and obtaining funding. You will leave this interactive session with tools and techniques you can put to immediate use as you seek funds from the private sector. Hands-on activities will be more meaningful if you come to class with a project in mind – it can be for any project at any amount. From the initial research to thanking the donor, this comprehensive session is good for beginners and seasoned grantwriters alike. The class will also explore the growing area of Donor Advised Funds and their potential impact on foundation giving. Lunch included (in form of voucher for use in the MSC food court).
