• What IS Your Problem? Writing a Compelling Statement of Need
The need statement is arguably the most important part of a grant proposal. Understanding the most effective methods for documenting a need, and then using that information to engage the reader is the key to submitting a powerful grant application. Join GrantStation's CEO, Cynthia Adams, as she talks through not only how to find good information to build the need statement, but also how to grow the reader's interest, and create a sense of urgency around the issue to be addressed. This webinar is full of ideas, examples, and new ways to deliver your message so that the problem you are addressing is a need the grantmaker feels compelled to support!
When: Wednesday, January 22, at 2 pm sharp
Where: Mandeville 2nd floor conference room
