Grant Workshop – Outputs, Outcomes, Objectives, Oh My! Measuring Success
4455 W Lawrence St
Appleton, WI 54914
A strong grant request is one that is well-prepared, thoughtfully planned and concisely packaged. We offer monthly workshops focused on grant-writing skills that will be useful when applying for grants from the Community Foundation’s Bright Idea Fund or donor-directed funds with application processes.
Perhaps the most important question to ask yourself when developing your bright idea is “how will we know we have made a difference?” The answer to this question can sometimes make or break your grant proposal. If a reviewer can’t tell what it is you’re trying to achieve and how you plan to measure success, it is difficult for them to justify supporting your idea. The “Outputs, Outcomes, Objectives, Oh My!: Measuring Success” workshop, presented in partnership with Dr. Susan McFadden, will help you understand why funders are so interested in objectives and measurements and how to make yours better.
Dr. Susan McFadden has taught Psychology to college students since 1972. She spent most of her career at UW Oshkosh. Regardless of the specific course she was teaching, she always encouraged her students to think about how their knowledge was obtained. In other words, she emphasized asking good questions and figuring out good ways to answer them.
