With Mike Stratford.

More than ever, grant-makers are requiring Letters of Inquiry (LOI) from all grant-seekers not previously funded. What should you include in a one to two page LOI? In the first hour of this hands-on workshop, you will learn the basic information grantors really want and do not want to see. In the second hour, participants will write a mock LOI using an outline provided by the instructor.
