Gulf Coast Libraries to Host Free Proposal Writing for Nonprofits Webinar

Main Content

The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Libraries will host the free webinar, “Proposal Writing Basics,” for nonprofit groups looking for guidance on how to write grant proposals. The webinar will be held Tuesday, March 12, from 12 – 1 p.m. in room 213 of the Gulf Coast Library on the university’s Gulf Park Campus in Long Beach.

The Southern Miss Gulf Coast Libraries, which houses a collection of grant research materials, is a Cooperating Collection of the Foundation Center at the library’s Gulf Park Campus location. “Proposal Writing Basics” is an introductory overview of the process for new proposal writers.

Webinar attendees will learn how the Foundation Center’s resources can help address the following concerns: How should the proposal fit into the overall grant-seeking process; what to include in a standard proposal to a foundation; tips for making each section of your proposal stronger; what funders expect to see in your proposal and attachments; tips for communicating with funders during the grant process; and additional resources on proposal writing, including sample proposals.

The webinar is free, but space is limited. Pre-register by contacting Peter R. Dean, coordinator of the Cooperating Collection at the Southern Miss Gulf Coast Libraries, at 228.214.3461 or e-mail peter.dean@usm.edu.
