This event is offered in partnership with the Initiative Foundation.

This intermediate-level intensive workshop is geared toward nonprofit staff or long-term volunteers with grant writing experience who are ready to take the next step in crafting winning proposals.

Sourcewell strives to bring the highest-quality resources, information, and training opportunities to our members. We’re honored to partner with statewide organizations, like the Initiative Foundation, to bring this opportunity to our central Minnesota region.   

About the leader:

Grant-writing professional, Deneene Graham, will lead this training session.

Graham has worked with nonprofits and public organizations for more than 15 years. During that time, she has held various roles including grant writer, project manager, community impact specialist, research assistant, board member and community volunteer. Her most rewarding and successful roles have been those where she secured grant funding for programs she helped to develop. Deneene has also been on the other side of the grant funding equation as she spent several years coordinating the grantmaking process for a local funder.
