eLearning at Foundation Center


Conveying a strong program design and process are keys to delivering maximum donor impact in your grant proposal. It takes more than a well-researched and impactful program rationale. Your design must be logistically strong and programmatically sound while also taking the reader on a journey where your program serves as a key element to tie the need and impact together. Another essential element of creating and conveying impact are practical, sustainable collaborations with others in the local social sector. Join us for an in-person training and guided networking group exercise to meet others already in your organizational ecosystem with whom you can create greater impact. Maria S. Azuri, LMSW, and Foundation Center South leader, will lead an immersive hybrid training on crafting program designs and processes and connecting with your organizational ecosystem – leading to a sound and collaborative grant proposal that stand outs.


* Outline the steps of the program
* Outline processes to align with the intended program impact and rationale
* Connect the program goal with a structured operation that leads to intended impact
* Identify rationale for the need to focus on targeted expansion of our organizational network and social capital by identifying varied partnership and collaboration opportunities
* Identify up to three types of- or specific organizations that could lead to practical collaborations

This is great stand alone learning and engaging opportunity! Part 1 can be attended independently from Part 2.

Intended Audiences:

• Introductory- to mid-level non-profit professionals
• Non-profit professionals looking to increase their grant writing and program design skills
• Non-profit professionals wanting to identify and engage with other organizations to maximize impact
