About this Session: 

Join nonprofit colleagues to learn more about fundraising and grant writing. This workshop will introduce the fundraising cycle, detail how to build a robust development plan, explore solicitation options to determine the "right ask", and how to make your organization’s case for support. We'll also discuss tips for writing grant proposals including identifying the need, determining evaluation strategies, and putting together the basic information and documentation required by many grant funders.

Heritage Support Grants and fundraising training are provided by the Indiana Historical Society and made possible by Lilly Endowment Inc.
