Nobody—not even an experienced grant writer—can write a proposal alone. There’s a lot to do before you’re ready to sit down and write. Successful grant writing teams can produce better proposals. They provide: multiple viewpoints, pooled talents, staff and possible community buy-in, and shared resources. And, grant writing teams can share the workload to meet deadlines.
Join Grant Professionals of Lower Hudson and Nonprofit Westchester for a panel discussion on grant writing as a collaborative team. Panelists include three successful grant writing teams:
- Nonprofit agency and independent grant consultant/contractor;
- Non Profit agency and in-house grant writer; and,
