Purdue Extension Corner

Are you interested in learning about grant writing? Would you like to enhance your grant writing skills?

The two-day workshop teaches grant writers of all skill levels how to prepare and submit a professional proposal. The workshop is geared toward those who work or volunteer for nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, community clubs, and local government units and departments. Participants will learn how to develop ideas for winning grant proposals, identify and work with funding sources, and understand the proposal development, submission and review process. Professional review of a draft proposal is also included.

“Participants in previous workshops have received millions of dollars in funding, allowing them to expand community facilities, purchase needed equipment, and increase their services,” said Kris Parker, Regional Community Development Educator with Purdue Extension.

Registration is $175 per person and includes a workbook, reference materials and lunch both days. Through a partnership with the Putnam County Community Foundation, an exciting grant incentive opportunity exists. Individuals, who represent Putnam County nonprofit agencies, who complete both days of the seminar will receive a $250 grant to the organization that they represent. Limit of two grants per organization, however no grants will be made if the individual received a grant for attending the seminar in the past.
