It can be challenging to know exactly what information a funder wants in different sections of a grant application. Differing terminology and requirements can make the process feel overwhelming.

Fortunately, many funders are essentially looking for the same things within their guidelines. So with the right knowledge and tools, you can improve your proposals quickly.

Join Alice Ruhnke, president of GrantStation, to obtain your Grants Scorecard, a comprehensive grant review tool you can use (and reuse!) to edit information in your applications so you submit the strongest proposals.

Your Grants Scorecard includes specific guidelines that will show you what makes different sections of your applications exemplary, adequate, needing improvement, or poor. We will dissect the different elements of organizational background, need, approach, goals and objectives, evaluation, budget, and more so you can identify the areas you need to improve.

While no two grant applications are the same, this webinar will provide you with practical strategies you can put to use right away to increase your grantseeking success.
