A Practical Workshop on Proposal Development

This workshop will include a discussion on types of funders, determining your fit with a program, developing a concept note to “pitch” to a program officer, and steps to develop a full grant proposal.  Break-out sessions will include: searching for funding sources, practicing the writing elements of a concept note, and outlining steps to develop a winning proposal. Presenters Sarah Nerenberg and Yvonne Chang will facilitate discussions where attendees will be able to share their ideas and learn from each other.

Presenter vitae here:  Sarah Nerenberg and Yvonne Chang

A SPECIAL REQUEST FROM SARAH AND YVONNE:  They would like for each group of attendees to bring a laptop for interactive activities that may include web searches (e.g., if three people are attending from one institution, they might bring one laptop to share).  To help focus break-out activities during the workshop, please come with an idea for a proposal.

Special Note: After lunch, there will be an opportunity for Chief Development Officers (CDOs) in attendance to hold their own networking/discussion session.  Details about this event will be shared with all CDOs in a separate communication.




We will host the meeting at the ICI Center at 30 South Meridian.  We are located in Thirty South (old LS Ayres building), just a little south of the intersection of Washington and Meridian Streets on the west side of the street. The lobby entrance sits between Napolese and Oceanaire Restaurants.  Just come in the front lobby, and the person at the security desk will let us know that you are here and direct you to take the elevator to the 8th floor.    



The closest (and least expensive) parking is accessible from Washington Street.  There is a ramp from the left lane into the Sun Garage of Circle Centre Mall.  Once you've exited the mall and turned right on Meridian, you’ll see the Thirty South building just a little farther down on the right.  Also there is parking across the street at the Merchants Garage on Meridian, but it is more expensive.
