Philanthropy California Grant Writing Training #1

Knowing Your Community: Finding Data and Describing Needs

This program is presented through a partnership between Philanthropy California and the California Office of Emergency Services and is funded by the Listos California Grant Program.

This virtual grant writing training takes an in-depth look at how to describe community needs, a step that is very often required to complete a grant proposal. The good news is that you and your organization already know your community and its needs!

We’ll learn how to put that knowledge into a grant narrative in ways that funders will find persuasive, including finding and using different kinds of data. The webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Defining the problem, population, and service area in a grant application
  • Sources for community data
  • Using organizational/program data
  • Methods for primary data collection
  • Using studies and reports
  • Descripting community culture

Who Should Attend?

Grant writers of small to mid-size community-based organizations, nonprofits, and Tribes. Also welcomed are development, planning, and program staff who want to learn about building grants capacity in your organization.

Funders are also welcome to attend to learn more about how their grantees may be struggling to access public funding opportunities.
