The Driftless Writing Center will host “Grant Writing 101,” an introduction for nonprofit staff and volunteers on how to write grant proposals, on Saturday, Nov. 11, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The workshop will take place at Encore, 114 S. Main St., Viroqua, and the cost is $50 per person.

Registration is requested. Contact driftlesswritingcenter@gmail.com or 608-638-3880 to register.

“Grant Writing 101” is a targeted session for nonprofit staff and volunteers who want to learn the basics of grant writing and get insight into the world of charitable foundations and other private sources of funding. This four-hour session will show nonprofit staff and volunteers how and why foundations request grant proposals and what makes for an effective grant proposal package. Attendees will practice telling their organization’s story in compelling ways and learn how to build an organizational culture of story-gatherers — a key component of grant writing and fundraising success.

“Grant Writing 101” will be taught by Driftless Writing Center board member Jennifer Morales and all proceeds from this workshop will go to support future DWC programming. Morales has been writing grants for nonprofit organizations in the education social justice, and policy fields since 1993. Her grant writing has raised over $30 million for her client organizations.

Attendees are asked to bring a brown-bag lunch and a statement of their organization’s mission.
