Conflict Management Conflicts can be hard. Most people want to avoid conflicts altogether. Many get so emotional that they feel they can’t even say a single word.

Do you just leave it and hope that it goes away? The chances are that it probably doesn’t go away and will come back to haunt you.

Writing Effective Grant Proposals

ONLINE

A to Z Grant Writing is an invigorating and informative course that will equip you with the skills and tools you need to enter the exciting field of grant writing! You’ll learn how to raise needed funds by discovering how and where to look for potential funders who are a good match for your organization. You’ll also learn how to network and develop true partnerships with a variety of funders, how to organize a successful grantwriting campaign, and how to put together a complete proposal package. This course speaks mainly to nonprofit organizations, schools, religious institutions, and municipalities seeking grants from foundation, corporate, government, and individual donors. It’s also an excellent primer for individuals wishing to become grant-writing consultants or community grant-writing volunteers. Many of this course’s elements also easily translate to the for-profit field and to individual artists, and material specifically designed for businesses and individuals is included. No matter who you are or what level of experience you have, you’ll find the A to Z of writing and submitting successful proposals here!

ONLINE

Preparing successful grant proposals to receive funding from corporations or foundations requires careful research, meticulous preparation, and graceful writing. Grant administrators tell us that many grant requestors have no real understanding of the proposal writing process and as a result, their worthy causes lose out. If you learn how to avoid the errors that lead to the rejection of your proposal, you will be better prepared to help the causes you most admire. This course will walk you through all of the essential steps—including an important discussion of what you must do when the grant arrives! In this course, you’ll learn how to become fully familiar with the institution or project for which you are requesting support. You’ll get valuable guidance in preparing a background statement and a brief financial statement to support your request. You’ll also research some charitable foundation and corporate giving sources. Then, you’ll learn how to put everything together so you can assemble, write, and submit complete grant proposals to foundations, corporations, and wealthy individuals for any number of your pet projects. 124OGWN098B starts on 5/16/2012, $159 124OGWN098C starts on 6/20/2012, $159
