CityHarvest Workshop: Intro to Grant Writing
Start the New Year off by growing your grant writing skills and learning about what funders look for in a great application! Join City Harvest and our hosts at the Support Center for a three-part grant workshop series. In this workshop, you will discuss what makes a project compelling to a funder, and how to paint a vibrant picture of your organization and programs through the limited format of a typical proposal.
Register here. Please note that session 1 took place in January. For a summary, please contact Raffaella at email@example.com.
We encourage you to attend the two remaining sessions if you are able.
