Working on a shoestring to bring creative programming, an author or new books and media to your library? Apply for a grant! It sounds so easy! But how do you make your application "stand out" from the others? This program presents step-by-step grant writing techniques, how to match your need to a grant, and a wealth of available grant opportunities. A downloadable handbook will provide guidance for you and your library to "be a winner"!
This is a two-part webinar. Part I examines how a grant application is reviewed from the perspective from an ALSC Grants Award committee member and chair. Rubrics, grammar, and adherence to application requirements are some of the topics covered. Part II shares valuable information and tips from a successful Youth Librarian on successful grant writing as well as case studies. Learn how to evaluate your need, focus on the funder, build emotional impact, create innovative projects, and foster profitable relationships. Learn how to bring a funder to his/her knees!
