This grant writing workshop is designed to help entrepreneurs and nonprofit and community leaders learn the basics of effective proposal writing, including the do's and don'ts, and the key to what funders really want to see!

Workshop curriculum covers:

• Components of a competitive proposal;
• Tips from funders to proposal writers;
• A grantmaker’s process and criteria for funding decisions;
• How to gather the information needed to create a complete project or grant proposal;
• How to identify “red flags” or glaring errors in proposals.


A follow-up workshop (Grant Writing 2.0) is being offered 12/7 at 10 A.M.


*Your Zoom link will be emailed 24 hours before this workshop. 



If you need to cancel your registration for any reason, please inform us within 48 hours of the scheduled training by contacting: Family League Help Desk;

Please review our Professional Development Policy below:

If a participant does not attend a training for which they have registered, or does not to notify the Family League of their inability to attend within 48 hours of the scheduled training, the organization will be invoiced a “missed session” fee of $50.00. Organizations will only be charged in the event of a “missed session” by an employee. If an agency fails to pay the missed session fee, their staff will no longer be able to access training offered by Family League of Baltimore. The 48 hour requirement does exclude extenuating circumstances such as a death in the family, serious medical emergency, programmatic emergency that would require the attendance of the registered individual, etc.

Our goal is to continue to maximize the professional development opportunities for our funded partners, while reducing the large number of no show attendees we have experienced over the last year. Thank you for your cooperation with this policy and hope that your staff continues to benefit from the opportunities that will be offered during the coming year.
