I will be teaching a Winterim class–Grant Writing for Nonprofit Cultural Organizations and Historical Museums— at Rutgers University-Camden campus that I think will interest you and your colleagues.
The class is open to all; registration is now open. Registration information can be found at http://winterim.camden.rutgers.edu/howtoreg.html#NonRutgers Cost for the 3 credit semester hours is $2,024 for New Jersey residents; $3,194 for non-residents.
The Winterim is a short, intensive session between Fall And Spring Semesters. The class combines face-to-face classroom lectures & discussions; a field trip to the Newark Public Library; computer lab exercises at the Foundation Center in Philadelphia; and online collaborative exercises on SAKAI, a course management platform.
The course immerses students in current issues of fundraising and project/program development for nonprofit cultural institutions and historical museums. The course challenges students to analyze and evaluate history and cultural heritage projects and programs for funding opportunities and provides the opportunity to collaborate with professional development staff in the design, justification, budgeting and scheduling of a fundable project and to write and submit a complete grant to the appropriate regional or national funding agency.
