Effective Grant Writing for Development Professionals, Educators, Staff and Volunteers at Not-ForGrant Writing Workshop-Profit Agencies.

The Office of Continuing Education at the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley is offering a course on effective grant writing for development professionals, educators and staff and volunteers at nonprofit organizations. The course will address private foundation and corporate granting only. The class meets on four Thursdays: November 9, 16, 30, and December 7, 2006, from 6:30-8:30 at UWFox. Fee is $89 until October 26 and $99 thereafter.

Cathy Paynter, director of the Office of Continuing Education at UWFox, said this course comes with added value. “It’s different than most other grant writing seminars because the instructor will critique students’ ‘draft’ cover letters and grant proposals that they prepare for a foundation or corporate grant program. That real life, practical feedback will make this experience very valuable and applicable to the work they are doing right now.”

Taught by James Yagow, M.S.Ed., grant program manager at Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, the course will help attendees identify potential funding sources, develop effective proposals and budget plans, and understand the decision-making process from the grant maker’s perspective. Included in the course fee, Mr. Yagow will critique students’ cover letters, output/outcome and accountability statements and budget plans for a proposal currently underway.
