S.C. Association of Nonprofit Organizations Announces Grant Training

September 3, 2008

COLUMBIA, SC – September 2, 2008 – The Grantsmanship Center’s signature Grantsmanship Training Program is coming to Columbia, S.C., October 27-31, 2008.  This intensive five-day workshop will be hosted by South Carolina Association of Nonprofit Organizations (SCANPO).
The Grantsmanship Training Program is a comprehensive, hands-on workshop that covers the complete grant development process, from researching funding sources to writing and reviewing grant proposals.  More than 110,000 nonprofit and government personnel have attended this fast-paced, five-day workshop, which is followed with a full year of membership support services.

During this workshop, participants learn The Grantsmanship Center’s proposal-writing format, the most widely used in the world. In addition to practicing advanced techniques for pursuing government, foundation, and corporate grants, participants work in small teams to develop and then review real grant proposals.  Participants exit the class equipped with new skills, new professional connections, and follow-up support services for one year, including professional proposal review, access to The Grantsmanship Center’s exclusive online funding databases, and an array of other benefits.  Many also leave with proposals that are ready to polish and submit.
Tuition for the Grantsmanship Training Program is $895 regularly, but SCANPO Members may attend the October 27-31 training for the special discounted rate of $845.  The workshop will be held at Columbia College in Columbia, SC.
Class size is limited to 30 participants.
