Essential Grant Skills

In these challenging economic times, non-profit groups need a range of skills to be successful in their important work.  Williamsburg Regional Library will host this two-day long workshop that will help non-profits sharpen their fundraising skills.  The workshop conducted by The Grantsmanship Center, will deliver training that will help grant-seekers improve their ability to win grants. 

Essential Grant Skills is an interactive two-day training conducted by an experienced and successful grant professional and includes practical exercises.  The training includes an overview of the entire grants process, with in-depth emphasis on the key areas where even experienced grant professionals often stumble. Knowing how to identify and overcome these hurdles is crucial to grant success.

The Grantsmanship Center was founded in 1972 to offer training to nonprofit and government agencies. Before this time, no such training existed and small organizations often lacked the skills to compete for grant opportunities. Today The Grantsmanship Center conducts some 150 workshops annually. They have trained more than 115,000 people from all types of non-profit and governmental groups.

The cost for this two-day training is $445, with discounts for multiple participants from the same organization.  There are also scholarships offered by the Williamsburg Community Health Foundation that will support half the cost of the training.  Contact The Grantsmanship Center to register.  Call Patrick Golden at (757) 259-4071 or e-mail for more information about this program.
