Goodwill Fort Worth, Dallas Public Library to offer grantwriting training program

Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth and the Dallas Public Library have come together to bring the Grantsmanship Training Program® to Fort Worth May 13-17.

“This is not a sit-and-listen class,” said Barbara Floersch, The Grantsmanship Center’s Chief of Training & Curriculum. The Center’s highly participatory Listen & Discuss, Do & Review® curriculum engages and inspires as people develop program plans, draft full grant proposals, and then helpfully review each other’s work. “Our trainers make sure everyone gets what they need,” said Floersch. “Alumni return to their offices with real experience, solid work product, a binder of resources, and connections with peers for new partnerships and collaborations.”

The textbook used in class, Grantsmanship: Program Planning & Proposal Writing, has been praised by grantmakers and nonprofits from coast to coast as the blueprint for effective grant proposals.

Class size is held to 30 participants. Tuition is $1,095 and half-scholarships are available for a limited number of qualified organizations. Register, get more information, or apply for a partial scholarship by contacting The Grantsmanship Center at (800) 421-9512 or or
