Webinar: Writing Winning Grants with Sarah Lange
January 25, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PST
The world of grant writing is changing: We are being asked to jump through more hoops, such as eligibility, quizzes and Letters of Intent/Inquiry, which can drag out the application
(and therefore funding) process.
There’s a movement toward briefer and online proposals, which means we
need to demonstrate the need, flesh out our strategy and demonstrate our
success briefly and concisely. We need to show funders that we’ve got a strong base of local support, diversified funding base, and a sustainability plan.
The industry rejection rate is now above 50%, although no one’s quite sure
how high it’s crept. Yet grants are still the 2nd most effective
fundraising strategy, surpassed only by individual donor programs.
What’s a grant writer to do? Write better, stronger grant applications!
If you want to start, strengthen or expand your grant writing program,
you’ll want to attend our January 25 webinar, Writing Great Grants.
This webinar will be taught by Sarah Lange, Founder and Principal of New
Era for Nonprofits

build better boards, chart a course for an exciting future and brag about
all the great work they’re doing. Sarah is known and respected for her

strategic planning and communications. She has helped more than 200
agencies achieve their goals, is a published author, has led hundreds of

Clark University, but also has taught at Boston University School of
