Securing funding for the projects that matter to you is more challenging now than ever. Charity fundraisers face increasing competition and must master a range of skills. Their proposals must hook the reader from the beginning and not only paint a compelling picture of the problem but also persuade their prospect that they are the ones that can solve them.

In this intensive and practical course, your team will learn how to write persuasive grant proposals – and the supporting skills they need for effective fundraising today.

A key feature of this course is that all delegates receive our unique pre-course writing analysis. This covers 15 different areas of writing skills and helps us ensure the training meets the delegates’ precise writing needs, while ensuring delegates make rapid, targeted improvements.

By the end of their bespoke course, attendees will be able to:

identify and use win themes and highlight benefits that are meaningful to their prospect
navigate the terminology in the world of grant proposals
write clearly with impact
use storytelling to create a compelling problem/needs statement and emotive case studies
build and structure a persuasive argument in a free-form proposal or when responding to an ITT
work with theories of change and logical frameworks
avoid the most common pitfalls in grant-proposal writing
write critical supporting materials – from prospecting emails to CVs that sell
spot and correct errors in a proposal before it’s sent to the prospect.
