FROM IDEA… TO GRANT… TO FUNDING… RAISING MONEY

March 31, 2021 7:00 PM - 7:00 PM

If you are in Social Transformation, Arts and Theology, chaplaincy or general ministry, at some point in the not too distant future you may be asked to write a grant to pursue innovative ideas or support existing programming. Learning about how to think about grant writing may be the furthest thing from your mind, but it is an essential skill for spiritual leaders. So many leaders say “I wished I learned a little about this in seminary!” Learn how to consider and procure grants from grant-making bodies. Learn how to develop relationships, conduct research, and present your ideas to make your grant successful.  This is a two part introductory session. Our presenter Liz Loeb is brilliant organizer and teacher and a friend of UTS.
