What you'll learn in this grant writing class:

This workshop will prepare you to put your best foot forward the next time you apply for a grant. The goal of this course is to help you gain confidence in your fundraising and proposal writing abilities and provide you with a solid road map to begin the process.


The course is taught by Tracie Holder, a filmmaker and consultant, who has raised over $2.4 million for her own projects. In the first part of the class, Tracie will talk about fundraising for your project in general terms and review several key rules that apply no matter where you are looking for funding – whether you’re applying for a grant, doing a crowdfunding campaign, or cultivating individual donors. We’ll also discuss how best to identify potential funders.
The second part will cover the specific components of a proposal, how to convey ideas visually, and strike a balance between the big, broad brushstroke ideas and small details that make your project come alive on the page. We’ll look at excerpts from successful grant applications and discuss what makes an effective proposal.

What You Will Learn
  • Learn how to incorporate proposal writing into your artistic practice and move your project forward.
  •  Learn about the most common mistakes made when writing grant fundraising proposals – and how to avoid them.
  •  Understand the funding process from the potential funder’s perspective to become a more effective fundraiser and proposal writer.
  • Develop a comprehensive framework for proposal writing that will give you direction and confidence going forward.

Grant Writing for Creatives: A Two-Part Workshop
Reviewed by Will D. on 7/20/2019
The class was very foundational and general, which I understand, it was only two nights (90 minutes each). I was frustrated about two things: 1. We spent the first 40 minutes introducing everyone in the room. 2. 99% of everyone was there as a documentary filmmaker, which was not what I was there for, so there was a bit of a bias in the conversations surrounding grants, film festivals, documentaries, etc. (not my world) The instructor clearly has experience and led things well. Inevitably it's just a general overview with the limited amount of time. So that was somewhat disappointing.

Excellent course. The speaker had plenty of knowledge about the grant process and she gave us a lot of practical advise for success.
