Introduction to Grant Writing for News Organizations

A free virtual course on the basics of grant writing from The Lenfest Institute’s News Philanthropy Network.

The Lenfest Institute’s News Philanthropy Network Introduction to Grant Writing course is an asynchronous program that will walk you through every stage of the grant writing process.

The program, led by Molly Penn and Marissa Lewis of PENN Creative Strategy, covers everything from research to relationship-building to crafting the perfect proposal. The videos are accompanied by our Grant Writing Workbook, which will help you map out your grant writing strategy.

We designed the course to be spread over four weeks to make the information more digestible and pace things out. If you’d like these lessons delivered weekly to your inbox, you can sign up for the email course here. If you want to jump into the full course at once, keep scrolling.
