Writing Grants for Faith-Based Organizations
Have you ever sat at your desk wondering how to find funds to implement that church program that could make a big difference in the lives of the people you serve? Funding sources in congregational budgets used to come from a combination of tithes, gifts, rents, or endowments to fulfill the mission of God. In today’s world many clergy and lay professionals must get creative about funding their ministries and programs.
This hands-on webinar will provide participants a step-by-step process in effective grant writing and techniques for creating a narrative budget. Participants will explore religious and secular funding sources for congregational programs. Sample grants will be provided at the participants’ request.
