Who should attend

Grant writers seeking skill enhancement, non-profit employees and volunteers and people seeking marketable skills in the NPO environment.

Our program is primarily geared towards those seeking funds for nonprofit organizations. However, artists and scholars seeking personal support for projects will also benefit from this class.

Note: This class requires and assumes a core competency in expository writing and focuses on extending these skills into the specialized technical writing involved in fundraising. Students without fundamental writing skills, or those for whom English is a second language, may feel challenged at times.
