Grant writing is a misnomer. Half of putting together a winning proposal is building and collecting all the budget and financial documents that help tell your story. Learn tips and tricks from two highly successful grant writers who learned the power of collaboration when you partner with your financial team, because who knows numbers better than finance?

You will learn:

  • Tips for successful communication between accountants and grant writers;
  • The importance of building the budget first; and
  • Tools for internal collaboration that lead to successful proposals.
