Grants are a strategic and important part of the revenue picture for a nonprofit organization, but, they can also be time consuming and frustrating when the result isn’t what you’d hoped.

Participants in the Geared for Grants workshop will discover several ways to find grant opportunities, evaluate their fit with your organization, analyze the cost/benefit relationship of applying, and get hands-on practice in developing key aspects of a grant proposal. Participants will leave with several tools to assist in grant development efforts.

Geared for Grants will be facilitated by Shelley Loethen, founder of Encore Nonprofit Solutions. Over the past decade, Encore has helped clients secure nearly $55 million in grants, and countless unquantifiable benefits through program design and evaluation, strategic planning, volunteer management, and a variety of other services. Shelley is a Grant Professional Certified (GPC). The GPC is the only certification accredited by the National Commission of Certifying Agencies. The Encore team shares a firm belief that nonprofits are best equipped to address our social challenges, and is working to facilitate changes in the sector that support organizational health and success.
