How to Write Your First Grant

Thursday, October 19, 2023 11 AM EST

You’ve been tasked with writing your first grant proposal for your organization, and you have no idea where to start.

What information goes in which section? Are you using enough data? How much money should you ask for?

If you’re new to grant writing, the process can seem convoluted, overwhelming, and stressful. We know the feeling! At Elevate we’ve worked with hundreds of nonprofit organizations to win millions of dollars for their programs, and we’ve learned a thing or two about what constitutes a winning grant (and the mistakes to avoid).

In this FREE 90-minute webinar, we’ll walk you through basic do’s and don’ts to help you write your first grant with confidence. By the end of this webinar, you’ll understand:

  • The different types of grants you can apply for, and the pros and cons of each;
  • The anatomy of a grant proposal, and what information to include in each section;
  • How to tell a compelling story in your proposal that gets funders’ attention; and
  • The #1 thing most new grant writers forget to do before they submit a grant.


This free training is ideal for anyone new to fundraising and grant writing for nonprofits. It’s also helpful for grant writing professionals looking for a refresher, volunteer grant reviewers, anyone interested in exploring a career in grant writing, and those interested in learning a marketable fundraising skill.

We offer affordable webinars that cover a range of fundraising and grant writing topics from foundational skills like prospect research and cultivation, to more technical areas like program design and grant budgets.
