Share Your Story to Create Compelling Grant Proposals

PCCF is making two changes to our 2020 community grants program:
-we are seeking to fund programs that align with the key content areas identified by our We Will community visioning project (
- we are eliminating the $5,000 funding cap, towards the goal of funding more impactful programs

You have your organization’s story. And now It’s time to prepare your grant application. How are you going to present your project in a way that clearly illuminates: your anticipated impact in Park County? the important work you’ll be able to accomplish with a larger grant check? and your alignment with the We Will vision?

Come and learn or review your plan for submitting a strong grant request. Presenter Mary Hernandez will synthesize what previous Nonprofit Network trainers have shared and provide you some time to review what information you already have in place. Leave this workshop with a clear sense of which current program details are most compelling and identify what more may need to be considered to strengthen your 2020 grant requests. Note that information presented will be relevant to your overall grant seeking strategy, whether or not you are applying for PCCF grants funding.
