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: 

  1.  Nonprofit agency and independent grant consultant/contractor;
  2. Non Profit agency and in-house grant writer; and, 
  3. Two nonprofit agencies or grant writers that collaborated on a grant application. Gain tips on what makes an excellent grant writer-nonprofit agency relationship, how best to work with your grant writer; and, how to merge grant teams across agencies.
