This course is brought to you by a GPA-approved trainer. Diane Leonard, GPC is one of only 25 GPA-approved trainers.
A common first step of private foundation applications is the letter of inquiry (LOI). Not to be confused with a letter of intent often required by government grantmakers, letters of inquiry can be a barrier to grant-seeking success if you aren’t careful. You need to engage your letter of inquiry reader right away to be invited to submit a full proposal.
Participating in the webinar “Mastering the Critical 1st Step for Grants: Letter of Inquiry (LOI)” will walk you through, step-by-step, how to write a letter of inquiry that will grab your potential funder’s attention.
In this live, interactive nonprofit webinar, we will look at the steps necessary to write a successful letter of inquiry that will elicit the request for a full proposal from a grantmaker that you are seeking.
We will look at and critique successful and unsuccessful LOIs to help understand how to improve your own LOI for future submissions.
Participating in “Mastering the Critical 1st Step for Grants: Letter of Inquiry (LOI)” will give you the basic steps necessary to successfully write a compelling letter of inquiry whether in a limited online form, two-page hard copy letter, or anything in between.
Join this nonprofit training on how to write grants for nonprofits, and learn the tools to write the best LOI you can write, so you can take your nonprofit organization on the right way of the application process for nonprofit grants!

Angela Jordan, Five Talents
“I've been a grant writer for 15 years. The first part of my career I was involved with writing grants to the NIH, which are very different from grant request to foundations. Over the last 5 years, I've written a lot of grant request and LOIs and feel like I'm an expert. Even so, I learned a lot in this webinar - a couple of things I had not ever considered. Diane is an excellent presenter and has deep knowledge of the field.”
