Developing a capacity building grant request requires a specific approach which is distinct from the application process for operating or program grant requests. During this presentation, Alice Ruhnke will walk participants through the introduction, needs statement, objectives, and evaluation components of capacity building grant requests, using "real life, real time" examples of what funders are looking for. The webinar is appropriate for individuals who have a basic understanding of grant fundamentals and would like to apply those concepts specifically to capacity building grants. Participants will receive the power point presentation and the notes upon completion of the webinar.
