News Council introduces ‘Successful Budgeting and Grant Writing for Beginners’ series

The Providers’ Council recently announced a Successful Budgeting and Grant Writing for Beginners series, which includes two new trainings: Introduction to Excel and Budgeting Basics and Introduction to Grant Writing.

Designed for program directors and non-financial managers, Introduction to Excel and Budgeting Basics will deliver an overview of Excel, review budgeting basics and empower you to take control of your program’s finances. Participants will learn how to determine revenue, assess charitable grants and donations and calculate expenses, and will have a chance to create a mock budget and review it with the group for feedback at the end of the session.

This session will be held on Friday, February 3 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. via Zoom. Click here to register.

Introduction to Grant Writing, through the use of the Common Grant Application form, will review the main sections of a grant application: the cover sheet, statement of need, narrative, organization history, partnerships and memos of agreement, supporting data and proposed budget. Working in small groups, participants will have the opportunity to critique sample proposals and draft their own sample statement of need and narrative sections.

This session will be held on Friday, February 10 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. via Zoom. Click here to register.

Please note that registration for these events are separate; to attend both sessions, please sign up for each training individually.
