Do you feel like you have worked on a grant application before where you are chasing the money? Have you ever had colleagues create an idea just so you could respond to a request for proposals? Have you had to respond to a request for proposals at the direction of your leadership in less than a week?

Participating in “Overcoming Common Grant Seeking Challenges” will guide you through how to avoid and/or address common grant writing challenges.

Some common grant writing challenges can be avoided with proactive work on your part as the lead grant writer/grant professional. Other common grant writing challenges can not be proactively addressed, but can be addressed and overcome in a way that will not impact your overall grant writing success. In this live, interactive webinar we will look at common challenges from both scenarios.

Participating in “Overcoming Common Grant Seeking Challenges” will give you the knowledge to be able to identify grant writing challenges before they become road blocks for your grant writing success. It will also provide you with tools and strategies for approaching common challenges to ensure your success.

What You Will Learn from this Live Interactive Webinar

  • How to create a proactive grant seeking strategy that aids you in avoiding common grant seeking challenges;
  • How to address common grant seeking challenges when they arise; and
  • How to engage your colleagues and grant team in overcoming grant writing challenges to ensure your organization’s grant seeking success.

This Webinar is Perfect For You If…

  • You are new or relatively new to the field of grant seeking;
  • You are looking to learn from the experiences of other grant professionals in order to avoid common pitfalls in grant writing; or
  • You are looking to increase your success percentage.

This Webinar Includes the Following Supporting Materials

  1. A grant writing challenges checklist to help you proactively avoid common grant writing challenges in your organization.

  2. A resource guide to reference when addressing some of the most common grant writing obstacles.

  3. A free 30 minute follow-up consultation with Diane about your specific questions or concerns about writing a competitive fundable grant application.

Cathie Cummins, Children’s Assistive Technology Service

“This webinar on Overcoming Grant Writing Challenges covers just about every challenge one might encounter in grant writing when you are part of a team that already writes lots of grants. It covers organizational team issues and how to stay focused and organized. It doesn't cover the challenges of finding or writing grants themselves.”

Gina Bryant, Earthrace Conservation
