 HARRISBURG, Pa.—  The Library will host two free workshops for nonprofit organizations who would like to learn how to find grants and write proposals on Tuesday, November 10 at 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at the East Shore Area Library, 4501 Ethel Street in Colonial Park.


At 10:30 a.m., the Introduction to Proposal Writing workshop will present an overview of how to write a standard project proposal to a foundation. Attendees will learn the basic elements of a proposal, the “dos and don’ts” of writing and submitting a proposal, and how to follow up regardless of the outcome. An optional 30 minute exercise for developing a proposal outline will be provided after this workshop.


At 1:00 p.m., the Introduction to Project Budgets webinar will provide step-by-step instructions on how to generate a standard project budget for a foundation proposal. Attendees will learn the basic components of a project budget including income and expenses, how to estimate the realistic cost of a project, and what other financial documents may also need to be submitted with a proposal. It is recommended that those interested in the afternoon webinar also attend the morning Introduction to Proposal Writing workshop.


These free workshops are sponsored by Dauphin County Library System and the Foundation Center Grants Information Center. Registration is required. To register for these workshops, go to, email, or call the Ask a Librarian Desk at 652-9380 option 4.
