WEBINARS@LESLEY: Grant Writing 101

Escape from the summer heat and get started on preparing for fall projects with our two-hour course on grant writing with Lesley’s own Senior Grants Writer, Marianne Galvin.

In two one-hour sessions, webinar participants will learn the skills needed for writing successful grant proposals. The webinar will focus on the development of project goals, methods, timetables, evaluations, and budgets. Research of potential funders will also be explored through internet databases and through library resources.

Marianne Galvin, Ph.D., has over 25 years of experience as a development officer and professional grant writer. She has raised funds for a wide variety of non-profit institutions, including the New England Deaconess Hospital, Social Justice for Women, Children’s Museum of Boston, USS Constitution Museum, Somerville Historical Preservation Commission, Boston Adult Literacy Fund, and Lesley University.

    I am looking forward to this. With funds getting cut for programs in the public school system it is more and more difficult to provide pratical courses that the students will benefit from and really need. I hope to be able to learn to write effective grants so that I can offer at least one course for the students in my high school.

    Hi Mindie, the webinar will be at noon CA time, 3:00 pm EST. We will be recording it and if you visit http://www.lesleyalumni.org after the event concludes, you’ll be able to view it. We look forward to having you participate.

  20. Elizabeth says:

    The registration form offers a choice of dates to attend: 7/12 or 7/19. When I read the webinar summary, it is recommended that interested parties attend both webinars. Do I understand correctly that one needs to register twice?

    On another note, are there hand outs that can be downloaded? Or is this presentation auditory only? (Some of us learn best with lecture (auditory) and handout (visual).

    Thanks for your response.

    • Lesley University says:

      Hi Elizabeth, this is a two part webinar, so yes, you’d register for both. There will be materials to download, but we are still working on the finishing touches, so you’ll get a copy emailed to you tomorrow prior to the live event.

  21. Marie says:

    Is it too late to sign up?

  22. Marie says:

    I fogot to ask, Do you have to register on the computer you will be using for the webinar?

    • Lesley University says:

      Hi Marie, you can definitely still register, and you do not need to register on the same computer you use to attend.

  23. Lindawheeler says:

    Thought I registered for grant writing course but no luck:(

  24. Session 1 of Grant Writing 101 was very concise and helpful. Looking forward to Session 2; wondering if there is a completion certificate available at the end of the next session? Thanks!
