Writing Winning Proposals

grantproposal1Grant writing is often necessary for people that undertake community projects or engage in funding-required activities.  Unless they're wealthy, many people must seek financial support from government, corporations or foundations. When and how should grant-seekers apply for funds?

Experts concede that grants are not easy to win because of the competitive process.  However, applicants can learn and gain skills that lead to successful proposals.

Do you want to get in the game? Come out on Saturday, April 12 beginning at 10:30 a.m. to hear Walter C. Lundy, Associate Director in the Division of Early Learning at the DC Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE). 

Mr. Lundy, a grants management specialist, is a heavily sought after speaker for workshops and conferences. On Sept. 13, 2013, he provided a lecture at the Grants Management Conference, held at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C.  In August of last year, he served as a panelist at the 11th Annual Center for Non-Profit Advancement in the nation's capital. He addressed the topic "How to  Make the Funder and Direct Service Nonprofit Marriage Work." 

Mr. Lundy holds a master's degree in education and is a doctoral student at Howard University. He will focus on the elements of preparing a winning grant, the 14 reasons why proposals fail, and more.

If you wish to learn the grant-writing game, join us on Saturday, April 12 starting at 10:30 a.m.!
