Previously this class worked with HALO, Inc to help redesign their donation intake space and make it a more efficient space for clients to be able to utilize.  This included a hair salon, a "resale shop" for clients, and a secure place to keep sensitive paperwork.  Brenda Thomas, Development Assistant at HALO, said "Each issue was addressed and, we strongly feel, successful solutions were presented.  During the PowerPoint, both [students] were able to show us our needs, their design...and how their work will impact our room and our efficiency."

Become a Better Grant Writer!

Hosted by Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast, the esteemed Grantsmanship Center will be bringing its Grantsmanship Training Program to Milwaukee April 22-26. 

 

The Grantsmanship Training Program workshop is designed for both novice and experienced grant seekers. It is a comprehensive, hands-on workshop that covers writing and reviewing real proposals, as well as researching funding sources. Using The Grantsmanship Center's SM proposal writing format, you will receive information about all of the elements necessary to write a fundable proposal. Writing and reviewing real proposals, you'll learn how to search for appropriate funding sources and are involved in practical exercise with others in developing a proposal that could be submitted to a funding agency or used as a guide in developing a proposal for your agency. 

 

You may contact Michelle Fobair at the Girl Scouts mfobair@gswise.org with questions. For additional info and to register, visit the Grantsmanship Center website: http://www.tgci.com/gtpschedule.asp
