Join us on Zoom: check back here for the meeting link!

This workshop is intended to provide a quick and dirty overview of everything involved with writing grants. By taking a “a birds eye view” approach — touching on everything from dreaming up your big project to clicking “submit” on your final report — our goal is to demystify the grant writing process. By the end of this short workshop, Nico will empower you to speak passionately about your organization, compile meticulous attachments, and craft persuasive arguments for your projects such that funders will have no choice but to say yes.

Nico Wood Kos is a self-taught grant writer with more than 40 successful applications to her credit.
