Use Your Grants as a Tool of Change
How grant writers can deconstruct their traditional grant writing practices and instead use their grants programs to further social justice.

The words we use matter. The stories we tell have an impact. Yet, our grants are often full of old, recycled language and buzzword descriptors that are more than just boring — they’re harmful. Grant writers play a critical role in branding the organization and crafting the ways in which it is presented to funders, and thus they are critical in integrating social justice into fundraising programs - and the overall culture and work of their organization.

This hour-long workshop explores how grant writers at all stages of their career can ground their grant writing practices in race, equity, and social justice. Participants will explore the ways in which we talk, teach, and practice nonprofit work can uphold harmful systems of oppression - or use their writing to further anti-racist, community-centric principles. From word choices to storytelling, we’ll delve into how to deconstruct grant writing, and identify alternatives that writers can start using right away
