Getting All Your Ducks in a Row: How to Plan for Grant Proposal Success Edit Title
Wed, Aug 26, 2015 at 1pm EDT / 10am PDT Edit Date
As a grant professional, you should never have to worry about being unprepared for a grant proposal, grant report, or conversation with a grantmaker. In this webinar we will discuss the planning you’ll need to do to make sure you’re ready to take on the world. This session is designed to give you the tools you need to get started right away, and is ideal for grantwriters and fundraising managers.
- The 5 pieces of information you absolutely need when planning a funding proposal
- How to use those plans to shape a full proposal template
- How you can prepare your proposal to make grant reporting a snap
Special Feature: We will engage in a brief role play between a participant (playing the 'grantseeker') and the instructor (playing the 'grantmaker'). You'll get to hear the conversation and the debriefing, and offer your own feedback.
Instructor: Dalya Massachi, a writer since learning to hold a pencil, inspires and equips social sector professionals to use their writing to make a difference. She is the award-winning author of “Writing to Make a Difference: 25 Powerful Techniques to Boost Your Community Impact.”
Since 1997, her strategic grantsmanship expertise has helped her raise millions of grant dollars for nonprofits of all sizes, on a wide range of social and environmental issues. Dalya is also the creator of the Grantwriter’s FastTrack Program, a unique online opportunity to get hands-on practice in grantseeking.
Dalya has presented countless seminars and keynotes across the U.S., and webinars with global audiences. Her presentations always feature practical, insightful advice, and include creative opportunities for hands-on activities . . . all delivered with a touch of humor.

This webinar was very informative and helpful. The practice conversation time was a great idea - I paid several hundred dollars to attend a workshop that did this recently. This webinar did a better job of feedback!

I thoroughly enjoyed this webinar. Dahlia was so clear and succinct with valuable information to a newbie like myself. I learned so much about presentation and the importance of speaking professionally. Thank you! Sorry for the misspelled name Daylia, it was an auto correct and I just caught it when proofing. Excellent Daylia!

This was an excellent webinar. Informative and easy to follow. The mock phone call with a program manager was illuminating. It worth the time to watch.

Excellent information. I'm always looking for ways to improve my grant writing efforts to work smarter and achieve better results. I will definitely use this information and continue with other webinars. This was my 1st, but there will be more!

The role playing section was a refreshing touch. The one area that seemed under-emphasized was the environmental scan and the factors that separate peer organizations from each other (what if you aren't the only organization doing what you do?). The logic model, 2P2R, and FIRST seem to be very useful tools for any grant project plan.

I wanted to let you know that the Dalya's webinar, "Getting Your Ducks in a Row" was one of the most outstanding educational pieces ( re: my grantwriting work) I have ever participated in! Thank you very much! It was helpful to dissect the 'priorities' in the FIRST model. I loved the 'real time' grantee/grantmaker exchange. It encourages me to be bold and more confident in my calls! Wonderful. I am studying the slides for review right now! Kathleen from Our Saviour's Community Services-Mpls, MN

Thanks so much! I'm working on my MPA and the grant writing course is not offered until next summer and I've been anxious to learn more about them.
