Excel for Grant Writers Edit Title

Wed, Feb 03, 2016 at 1pm EDT / 10am PDT Edit Date

Spreadsheets are valuable and affordable tools that are accessible to any grant proposal writer. Yet, some writers groan at the thought of using Excel or similar programs to work with numbers and other data.

If you are such a grant writer, this webinar will provide a concise introduction (or re-introduction!) to spreadsheets and how to use them to create stronger grant proposals.

Takeaways:

• Understand basics that make budgets easier to produce.
• Learn best practices that avoid budget or statistical errors.
• Use Excel to create and sort lists or tables, as opposed to using Word.
• Create impressive-looking charts based on data.
• Get links to step-by-step tutorials for use 24x7 after the webinar.
• Feel empowered to solve statistical problems that support need statements.

Come learn that 'there is strength in numbers'—particularly when they are powerfully presented to grantmakers!

  4. Hi All, here is a version of the PowerPoint without the videos (which are huge), because even though I've compressed the file it is too large to upload here. Note, however, that (1) you can view the webinar again for that content and (2) I am working with 4Good to see if there is a way to post the full version of the PowerPoint (or just the videos) here. If we are able to find a technical solution to make this possible, I will add the full version of the PowerPoint soon. Thank you.

    This version includes the "Best Practices: Sorting Data" page (p. 25), which was accidentally omitted from the presentation.
