For many first-time grant writers, seeking and applying for grant funding can be a daunting task.

“I knew nothing about grants until I took a grant writing class at The Center for Rural Development,” said Your Center of Learning student T.J. Mitchell. “I’ve learned a wealth of information concerning grants.”

Student Jake Moss, who was searching for grant funding opportunities for his nonprofit organization, picked up valuable tips on where to go to apply for grant funding.

“This training provided a great source for potential grant sources,” said Moss. “It definitely helped me to cut down on my research time.”

Both of these students took advantage of grant writing training provided by instructor and veteran grant writer Diana Anderson and made available through The Center’s Your Center of Learning.

Anderson will outline seven important strategic steps for writing and submitting grant proposals at her next training course, Grant Writing 101, on March 21,  from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at The Center in Somerset.

Don’t get boxed in by your current funding strategies. Register now for Grant Writing 101 and learn what it takes to put together a successful grant proposal.
