Custom Workshops

Elevate will work with you to plan and execute an interactive grants workshop for your staff. For example, some of the sample workshops we have delivered include:

    • Producing strong messaging and fundraising materials for your volunteers and donors
    • Interactive mock grant review—identifying strengths and weaknesses in proposals
    • Training program staff in the grants process and to provide the best possible content to their grants team
    • Logic models: inputs, outcomes, outputs
    • Fundraising from Local Businesses
    • Introduction to a comprehensive grants program, including prospecting, cultivation, and solicitation
    • Alignment, Positioning, and Context: Development Strategy

Our Process

In order to build a custom workshop, we will have a planning meeting to discuss your goals, audience, and logistics. For example, to clarify your goals, we discuss: If this workshop is successful, what will be different as a result? Do you have specific learning objectives? How interactive do you want the workshop to be?

To learn about the audience, we discuss the workshop size and experience, the background knowledge they already have on the issue, and their history with workshops, both generally and related to fundraising. We also inquire about what worked well or has not work well with past workshops. Finally, we get some basic details on space logistics, break out space, multimedia options, and time.

Elevate plans all workshop materials, allows you to review and edit, and then leads your team through a workshop. Our goal is for the workshop to be fun and interactive!

A few days after the workshop is complete, we’ll send out a survey to record feedback.
