Grant Writing for the Arts

LLAMS 20

"Grantwriting is one of many tools in fundraising and is a necessary skill for arts managers and artists who seek to support their work with grants. This course will teach the nuts and bolts of grantsmanship, including introducing the vocabulary and philosophy of grantwriting, the hallmarks of a well-written proposal, and the basics of grant searching. The class will use a Common Grant application as its organizing principle, selected because it is both comprehensive and reflects a growing trend in grantmaking. Students will learn the essential skills of grantwriting, writing in teams, critiquing a grant, planning a grant budget, and how to describe a cultural program?s mission, goals and program to grantmakers within space limits. Students will conclude the course by writing a comprehensive and ready-to-submit grant for their nonprofit or a case study organization. All course work is applied to a case study community, which may be your own or one where you work or volunteer.
