…The grant proposal workshop was extremely helpful to me, especially with [HumanitiesDC] critiquing my proposal.  Perhaps the best bargain of the year!


Go beyond the basics of proposal writing, and strengthen your grant proposal with our client HumanitiesDC during the quarterly Grant Writing Clinic on January 21. Open to grant-writers at all experience levels, this Grant Writing Clinic will give individualized feedback to each participant on one of their own grant proposals, while providing them with the fundamental knowledge to strengthen their fundraising efforts.

Using group exercises and feedback, participants will gain a better understanding of:

  • the grant-seeking process,
  • the components of a competitive grant proposal,
  • tips from the grant-maker’s perspective,
  • and how to build a relationship with a funder.

As a participant, you will receive peer and instructor critiques on your proposal, review peer proposals as a “grant-maker,” and identify ways that you can strengthen your grant-writing.

Class preparation: All participants will be able to submit one current or previous grant proposal that they have worked on. Individual feedback with suggestions will be returned to the participant at the clinic. Applications cannot be proposals intended for submission to the Humanities Council (we provide grant application feedback during the grant-making process). Proposals must be submitted to the instructor by e-mail (rmannino@wdchumanities.org) as a Word document by January 16, or the participant will not receive individualized feedback.


When: Wednesday, January 21

Cost: $50.00

Where: The Council’s Offices, 925 U Street, NW Washington, DC 20001 (across from the 10th Street Exit of U Street Station)
