This course is brought to you by a GPA approved trainer. Diane Leonard, GPC is one of only fifteen 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 grant makers, 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 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 grant maker 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.
1. A Letter of Inquiry checklist for success.
2. A letter of inquiry (LOI) development tool to help you gather and document the key components of a successful letter of inquiry.
3. A free 30 minute follow-up consultation with Diane about your specific questions or concerns about letters of inquiry including review of a letter of inquiry you have written.
