Is your organization ready for grant funding? Kenya Asli shares strategies that helped her secure over $1 BILLION in grant funding

You didn't misread. $1 BILLION. This workshop is designed to help non-profit leaders develop grant applications and proposals that get funded. There are specific skills and strategies for proposals under $50k. For small or new non-profit organizations, this is a great workshop to learn how to take the passion for your cause and turn it into dollars for your cause.

You will learn the component parts of a proposal, the differences and commonalities between different grants , developing needs assessment, creating a budget, and how to tell your organization's story in a way that gets funded.
