If your experience filling out grant applications is limited or your previous applications have been less successful than you’d like, this workshop will take you through the basics of articulating a compelling case for your projects, creating a realistic budget, assembling relevant support materials and more.

Note: this workshop will refer to the City of Richmond’s Arts and Culture Operating Assistance and Project Assistance programs as the model, but the information will be transferable for most government and foundation funding applications for non-profit associations. Participants are encouraged to bring an organizational grant you are currently working on, or one you would like to revise.

Facilitated by Camyar Chaichian, Program Manager, Community Cultural Development.
