Fueling the Funding Engine - Fundamentals of Grant Writing with Elizabeth Kipp-Giusti

Hosted by Arts Politics alumna Elizabeth Kipp Giusti ('16)

Grant writing is the fuel of the funding engine that drives your programs and projects into reality. This workshop will provide you with an overview of how to write a standard project proposal to a foundation. Attendees are encouraged to bring ideas you would like to see funded.

We will discuss:

-The basic elements of a proposal

-How to find funding opportunities

-The “do’s” and “don’ts” of writing and submitting a proposal

-30-minute hands-on exercise to develop a proposal outline

This workshop has been designed for Arts Politics students and alumni, whose work often crosses interdisciplinary boundaries and maintains a lens of social engagement. Others are welcome to attend by RSVP to Kristin Killacky at ksk281@nyu.edu.
