    Proposal Writing & Budgeting (2-part series)

    Grants are one of the primary sources of funding for nonprofits yet many grantmakers say a significant amount of the grant proposals they receive do not provide them with the information they need in a clear and concise manner. Budgets are also one of the first things funders look at when reviewing proposals, yet some don’t reflect the proposed scope of work.

    In this interactive, two-part series, you will learn the best practices and common mistakes in writing compelling proposals and discover what funders are really looking for in grant proposals and budgets. You will have an opportunity to draft essential parts of a proposal and receive feedback from class participants during the proposal workshop.

    Part 2 – Preparing Proposal Budgets that Make Sense

    Tuesday, June 4th

    This workshop will cover:

    • Building a comprehensive project budget that accurately reflects your proposal
    • Determining the right amount to ask for in your funding request
    • Tracking your budget once the grant has been received

    Registration: Free as part of the launch of HoCo Excel, Howard County's Nonprofit Excelerator! Registration is required as space is limited

    Along with conducting the annual business of ACS, join us for a discussion about how we can promote greater financial security for County residents. Our goal is to identify ways in which low-income residents could put (or keep) more “money in pockets” – policy changes or innovative program ideas? County or State level? – and then prioritize our list to inform our advocacy efforts with state and local officials. Every member’s voice matters in this discussion so please plan to join us!
