Grant Writing for Environmental Advocacy

Instructor Name: 
Lisa Jo Frech
Course Description: 

Grant writing skills are critical to the survival of many non-profit environmental organizations. In this course you will learn grant writing skills by developing real grant proposals for Rising Tide. Rising Tide (http://www.portlandrisingtide.org/) is an international, all-volunteer, grassroots network of groups and individuals who organize locally, promote community-based solutions to the climate crisis and take direct action to confront the root causes of climate change. In order to write a successful grant proposal, you will need to learn as much about our community partner organization as possible. For this reason, issues of environmental advocacy will play a central role in class activities and assignments throughout the term.
