CFSA’s Center for Healthy Nonprofits’ new three-part Grant Writing Series, presented by Carolyn Owens, is designed to help nonprofits improve their grant writing from start to finish. Learn how to find the best grants for your nonprofit, make your grant request stand out, and learn special grant writing tips and tricks.
With 24 years of experience, Carolyn Owens offers expertise in program design, logic models, implementation plans, budgets, preparation of grant applications with strict attention to detail, board and staff training, strategic planning, and nonprofit best practices.
You must register for each session separately. Sessions include writing practice, so participants should bring a laptop or notebook if attending an in-person session.
