Letters of Interest are like the first date of grant writing–first impressions mean everything! In this 90-minute session, we will discuss the common elements of an LOI, uncover what grant funders are looking for in your narrative, and learn how identifying your target audience can make you a better writer ( and tips to use!) We’ll take a deep dive into aligning your mission to the funder’s through a hands-on activity and explore how best to pitch your program. Together, we will walk through the process of creating a compelling LOI that makes the best first impression!
