Writing Grant Proposals for Foundations

February 26

€288 – €330
Funding from USAID and DFID

Did you know that many grant-making foundations receive at least one grant proposal every day?

Writing a grant proposal for foundations follows quite different rules compared to institutional donors like government donors or funds. This is especially true for smaller, family-run foundations. Foundations like your proposal to be tailor-made, balancing rational with emotional elements. So knowing these rules will make you ‘stand out from the crowd’ and increase your chances to receive funding and enter into long-term and fruitful win-win partnerships with them.

During this one-day workshop participants will learn how to use key elements that create a compelling grant application that tell an engaging story. Participants will look at a range of individual samples of previous applications and discuss how to strengthen them. There will also be enough room for developing one’s own creative ideas!


When: 26. February 2020, 9am to 5:00pm
€330.- (incl. VAT, lunch and refreshments)/€288.-for TripleFunds (www.triple-funds.com) members (20% discount)
