FREE Grant Writing Workshop
Saturday May 7, 2022
1:00 -3:00 pm

When you sit down to write a grant, do you quickly start to feel like you’re in over your head? Does successful grant-writing feel like something that someone else might do: someone with more experience or connections or intimate knowledge of the granting process?
You’re not alone! In this workshop we’ll try to demystify the process, establish a methodical approach, and humanize those gatekeepers who stand between us and the projects of our dreams.
