The approach section in your grant proposals must be clear, specific, and realistic. It should also be aligned with the needs you previously identified, your proposed outcomes, your budget, and the funder’s requirements. With so many factors to consider, it's easy to make mistakes and write an approach that has insufficient detail or is misaligned with other portions of your proposal.

During this webinar, Alice Ruhnke will show you how to build an approach that inspires confidence in your program and shows it is well-planned, feasible, and builds on community assets. You’ll learn:

  • what an approach section is and how it relates to the rest of your application;
  • common components of an approach section and how to write them;
  • an explanation of best practices and how they can strengthen your approach;
  • how to write an approach that will mirror your budget; and,
  • best practices in developing partnerships—a critical component of grant success.

You’ll walk away ready to communicate an approach that is clearly aligned with the rest of your proposal and the funder’s desires.

Part of the GrantStation Webinar Recording Series: Grants and Partnerships which is designed with beginners in mind. It’s perfect for any member of a nonprofit organization seeking to strengthen their proposal writing skills. Save $! If you're a Learning Member, purchase the package for only $10 instead of paying $5 for individual sessions.
