Designing Programs for Results - Online
—a 2-day training for Fort Worth Agencies—
Sponsored by:
             
       
The Fort Worth Police Department is pleased to partner with The Grantsmanship Center to offer this energetic, highly experiential training to Fort Worth service agencies.  

 

Created specifically for virtual delivery, this training combines online presentations, discussions, and exercises with offline reading and practical applications. You won't be tempted to check email because you'll be too engaged with colleagues also eager to make better communties. We know bodies can't sit too long at a screen so online sessions are limited to 2 hours with a break at the mid-point. You get the the convenience of virtual plus the delight of personal interaction. 

Grantmakers focus their investments on results and long-term impact, so it’s up to organizations to design solid approaches that meet their constituency’s needs, and to document the positive changes that result from those approaches. This two-day workshop covers the major aspects of developing effective programs that will inspire support. This training is focused on program planning rather than writing proposals.

  2. Does your agency impact crime/safety?
  3. Have you or do you intend to apply to the City of Fort Worth for a Crime Control and Prevention District (CCPD) Community-Based Program grant?

If you answered 'yes' to these questions, then we welcome you to apply. This training is generously underwritten by the Fort Worth Police Department so your cost is only $20 instead of the standard $850 fee. After you apply, we'll get back to you within 3 business days with application approval and then you'll be able to complete your registraion with the $20 payment which will  secure your seat.
