Learning | Grant Writing Workshop Part II on Wednesday, August 2

Sharpen your grant writing skills this summer by learning how to craft a proposal.

New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is presenting a two-part workshop series that builds fundamental skills for grant proposal writing, such as identifying alignment with a funder, crafting a narrative, and writing for an audience. Through case study examples of grant proposals, lecture presentations, and in-class editing, NYFA’s knowledgeable Fiscal Sponsorship staff will equip artists with the skills they need to effectively communicate their projects to funders. The first of the two workshops was already offered, with the second happening on Wednesday, August 2.

“Part II: Crafting a Proposal” will use winning grant proposals as a reference for investigating formatting proposals and providing budget tips and methods for writing to an audience. Participants in grant writing workshop Part II should come prepared with a 250-word project summary.

“Part I: Analyzing Guidelines” provided an in-depth review of different sets of grant guidelines. By focusing on key vocabulary, funding priorities, and strategies for determining funder suitability, artists left this workshop empowered for in-depth analysis of grant guidelines.
