Breaking Down the
Proposal Workshop
December 16, 2020  10:00 am  
Central Time (US & Canada)

Recognizing that the SLPO's community impact and effectiveness are closely aligned with the effectiveness of those they fund, the SLPO Board launched its Capacity Building Series for Nonprofits in partnership with Mosaic Beginnings. To increase support of nonprofits and further the SLPO's mission, the Board strongly believes it is important to assist nonprofits "beyond the grant". Efforts such as providing technical assistance in targeted functional areas of organizational development are important  in creating impact and leveraging resources entrusted to its care. This is especially true for potential grantees and other nonprofits as they seek opportunities to strengthen their capabilities to achieve their mission

The first Capacity Building workshop was held December 16, 2020 on the topic of Grant Writing. With over 90 registrants, the training centered on “Breaking Down the Proposal” in areas such as Statement of Need, Objectives, Budget and Evaluation as well as addressed elements like S.M.A.R.T. Objectives, Program Development and Logic Models, and Racial Equity. A key highlight of the training was the introduction of the new password protected SLPO Capacity Building website developed specifically for participants in the three workshops. This website contains a wealth of information on a variety of topics covered over the course of the workshop series in addition to access to the recorded trainings.
