In this participatory workshop, MANY Executive Director Erika Sanger will guide attendees through the grant writing process to build skills and develop insights, including analyzing guidelines, outlining narratives, writing statements of need, and developing budgets. Sanger will share examples of successfully funded grant narratives, hints for streamlining work processes, and designing visually appealing attachments.
In her 35-year museum career, Sanger has secured grants from federal, state, foundation, and corporate partners that advanced institutional priorities and funded public programs, facility expansions, endowment and capital campaigns, artist residencies, scholarships, research projects, and staff positions.
Participants will be writing and sharing their work and must bring a laptop computer or tablet to the workshop. Coffee and lunch are included. All workshops are from 10 AM to 4 PM.
Workshops will be limited to 20 people. Priority will be given to employees and volunteers of 501(c)(3) designated museums and history organizations in New York State with operating budgets of $150,000 or less. There is no charge for the workshop but participants must apply and meet the requirements stated above. Applicants will be notified of acceptance status at least two weeks before the workshop.
Workshops are being produced as a program of the Pomeroy Fund for NYS History with support from the New York State Council on the Arts.
