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 will help you understand why funders are so interested in objectives and measurements and how to make yours better. Come with a specific idea or project in mind. More details will be announced closer to the workshop date.
We strongly suggest that you attend a “Navigating Your Community Foundation” session prior to attending a workshop. The last 2017 “Navigating” session is Oct. 3. Dates in 2018 to be determined.
