Grant Writing and Fundraising: Ideas to Realities

We are aware of missing faculty photos in the directory and catalog and will be updating them shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Fall 2016 quarter

Taught by

This course will introduce students to the fundamentals of grant writing and fund raising. After an orientation to contemporary philanthropy and trends, students will learn how to increase the capacity of an organization to be competitive for grants and other donations. We will share ways to plan realistic projects, identify promising funding sources and write clear and compelling components of a grant, based either on guidelines for an actual funder or a generic one. Working individually or in small groups, students will develop their project idea, outline the main components of a grant and prepare a brief common application.
