Learn how to use a Program Planning Framework to plan your grant applications so that they tell a strong, consistent story! Speaker Alice Ruhnke will highlight each section of a typical grant application with information on what funders are looking for and tips on writing that section. By the time the session is over, you will:

• Understand what funders are looking for in grant applications.
• Be able to decipher confusing grant-related terminology.
• Have a usable system to connect all the pieces of an application.
• Have strategies to infuse your organization's strengths in your proposal to make it strong and competitive.

You also will learn about new grantseeking research resources available at the Parkersburg and Wood County Library. The library is a Funding Information Network partner of the Foundation Center by Candid. As a partner in this nationwide network, the Library provides visitors with free public access to grantmaker directories and online research tools to locate grants and funding opportunities. Library staff will review these resources, paying special attention to the Foundation Directory Online, a database of over 140,000 foundations, corporate giving programs, and grantmaking public charities.

This event is organized by a Funding Information Network partner.
