Workshop to Cover Grant Writing
UW-River Falls will host a grant proposal writing workshop June 13 from 8:30-4:30 p.m. at Rodli Commons on the UW-RF campus for non-profit and educational organizations.
The workshop will discuss finding sources of funding and putting together successful written proposals to obtain that funding. Topics covered will include a general overview of what grants are and who is eligible for them, a survey of public and private funding sources and how to find them, and the process of writing a proposal.
One of the workshop's presenters will be Bill Campbell, UW-RF director of Grants and Research since 1990. Campbell has written or co-written hundreds of successful grant proposals. He has also led proposal-writing workshops for a variety of local, regional and national organizations.
The workshop will also feature special guest presenter Linda Jacobson, the associate director of the Cooperative Development Initiative. The CDI is funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and provides training and technical assistance to start cooperative and collaborative ventures in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
The workshop is designed for non-profit agency personnel, social service providers, K-12 teachers and administrators (both public and private), artists and art organizations, and others interested in grant funding proposals.
Participants in the workshop will work in small groups to formulate and develop ideas for grant proposals. At the end of the day, groups will present their proposals for large-group evaluation.
The Grant Proposal Writing Workshop is sponsored by UW-RF Continuing Education Extension. Workshop fee is $59, and registration is due June 7. Continuing Education credit is available.
