Grant writing is an important process for cultural heritage organizations, but often those tasked with the job are not given the tools they need to succeed. This workshop will guide participants through the essential elements of the grant writing process. This session is a great place to start for those feeling under-equipped for beginning to write and submit grant proposals. Together we'll discuss the key elements of a grant proposal, helpful resources for tailoring your submission for the most impact, and how to make your process more organized and less stressful.

Describe the essential elements of a grant proposal
