Listen, previous participants have been overwhelmed by how impactful and interactive this training is and are amazed that they feel confident and ready to conquer the grant writing world after just one class.  They have reported how they were told how hard it is to write grants, some have even spent thousands of dollars on so called “grant writers” who haven’t been able to deliver, and some have horror stories about trying to write them without any type of training.
 
You will be given comprehensive training, which includes how to start an effective non-profit, learn about your tax forms including your 501c3, learn how to write a grant and actually write a group proposal that day in class, you will get a step-by-step guidebook, you have a grant writer that is available to answer questions after your class…and…we will also be providing you with a list of over 600 funders who are looking to fund programs like yours RIGHT NOW!  So, we ask you, what excuse do you have not to learn how to grant write, right now?

The 2015 grant theme is And now for something completely different: Small grants to support new projects or programs that add value to the community and have a likelihood of success. Click here to view eligibility and apply.

Have you been trying to get a new project off the ground? Does your organization have a new idea that you haven’t tried before? This cycle, GiVE 365 members will be looking for projects that require some start-up funding, but could make an important difference to the community.

Projects should advance the mission of your organization and have a plan for sustained funding (if necessary) past the initial start-up.  Pilot projects that have been on the back-burner for lack of funds or new ideas that haven’t been tried at all, will have a chance to receive funding. Requests to expand existing projects are not eligible. Grants to advance the planning of a new project which may not be implemented within the grant period of one year will be considered.

Projects can be physical in nature (small-scale construction projects), event-based (to support a festival, performance, community meeting, etc.), or simply to get a program started or enact a pilot. However, the members will be looking for projects that have not been tried (at least in your organization), but that have a likelihood of success. Nonprofits have an opportunity to step outside the box and find funding to try something completely different to improve our community.
