You have probably been in more than one workshop in which you were told to not include anything in your proposal that the funder didn't ask for. But what about when the guidelines don't ask you for something you know is important? A strong and competitive proposal will not only answer a funder’s questions, but also give you a head start on measuring your impact once you win the grant.  In this webinar, veteran grant writer Cheryl Kester will teach you how to identify and anticipate funder’s needs when preparing a proposal.



  • Anticipate funder needs and priorities in a solicitation
  • Build a foundation for impact measurement into your proposal

Intended Audiences:   

  • CEOs/Executive Directors
  • Development Officers
  • Strategy Officers
