Curriculum

  • Micro-Course 1 - Developing a Grant Proposal

    Grant writing is a highly marketable skill in the nonprofit sector. Most nonprofit organizations must secure external funding to provide needed services to the community. In this course, learners will explore the role of grantsmanship in nonprofit organizations. You will compare the different funding sources, with an emphasis on foundations, and learn about foundation research resources and tools. You will also learn about raising funds from government sources. Finally, you will identify cultivation strategies for communication with foundation staff and trustees before and after a grant proposal has been submitted.

  • Micro-Course 2 - Writing a Grant Proposal

    Successfully obtaining a foundation grant will depend on a well-written, compelling grant proposal. A grant writer must customize every grant proposal to each foundation's needs and requirements to increase the chances of securing funding. Learners will increase their grant writing proficiency by examining primary components of a grant proposal, including the executive summary, cover letter, needs statement, proposed services, goals and objectives, evaluation, sustainability, and project budget. Your efforts result in a grant proposal in which you communicate each of the unique segments of your project.

  • Micro-Course 3 - Managing a Grant

    When you submit a grant proposal, it may feel as if the grant writing journey is complete—but, in many ways, it is just getting started. In this micro-course, learners examine the grant review process, what you can expect when your proposal is accepted, and how to proceed when a funder declines your application. You will explore the ways in which you respond to funder feedback and continue cultivating relationships. Learners explore post-award activities, functions, and responsibilities, including reporting requirements. Finally, you examine methods for measuring a project’s impact, ensuring accountability, and sustaining a grant-funded project.
