E-Courses on Grant Writing/Fundraising

Grant Writing/FundraisingDuration: 4 weeks
The Grant Proposal Writing & Fundraising Course provides training in effective fundraising methodology. The course focuses on the importance of grant writing; learning the "do's and don'ts" of a convincing proposal and gaining persuasive writing tips; how to be transparent and accountable to funders; resources for finding grants; acquiring expertise about effective fundraising strategies; and creating a grant writing proposal to submit after the course ends.
Students who complete the course, exercises, and final project plan receive a certificate and are eligible to apply for a GYCA Small Grant for $1500 to implement the project. They are required to provide a detailed Monitoring & Evaluation strategy, and blog regularly providing updates and pictures about their project’s progress.
The courses are evaluated based on participants’ feedback and continually revised to provide lucid and usable tools.

How do I apply for a GYCA e-course? To apply for an e-course, you MUST be a GYCA member. If you wish to join GYCA, please click here. After you join, or for those who are already members, simply fill out the application form available for download on the website, and submit by the necessary deadline. Please follow all application instructions carefully. Applications can be sent here: grantwriting@youthaidscoalition.org
Can I apply anytime for an e-course? No. Due to the high number of e-course applications we receive, we only accept applications during the designated "application week," which we announce on the website. Please see the e-course schedule for relevant deadlines. You can apply as soon as the application week begins.
How will I know if you received my application? If your application is received by our e-mail account, you will receive an automated message. Please do not send additional inquiries about whether or not your application was received.
How much do the e-courses cost? The e-courses are free! You will need to have a way to access the Internet for the duration of the course. While you can read the texts on the computer screen, some participants prefer to print them out. If you prefer to print the texts, you should be prepared for the cost of printing.
What languages do you offer the e-courses in? Currently, we only offer the e-courses in English.
Should I send additional materials with my application? No additional materials are necessary.
How do the courses run? Each participant is expected to submit answers to weekly exercise questions; check the discussion board and contribute to weekly discussion questions (usually 3 questions a week); and finally, submit a fully coherent, developed, complete final project plan, grant proposal or advocacy campaign.
In order to receive a certificate of completion, each of these tasks must be completed to the satisfaction of the course facilitator. It is important that the course members stay in contact, via email, with the course facilitator post-course to track the progress of the implemented plans.
What am I expected to do in the course? All e-courses require 4 to 8 hours of work each week. It is vital that all of the text modules are read, exercises are completed to the best of the participant's ability, and the discussion questions answered. Each participant should have regular access to computers and the Internet, and should not sign up for the e-course if he/she anticipates travelling or has an already time-consuming schedule. The courses cannot be truly effective unless each participant contributes fully!
Once I complete the course, how long will it take my certificate to arrive? International mail can take anywhere from three to eight weeks to reach its destination.
I completed an e-course and never received my certificate. What happened? GYCA mails all participants who successfully complete the e-course a certificate. However, it is fairly common for international mail to not reach its destination, especially in areas where postal service is irregular. If you have not received your certificate eight weeks after completing the course, please contact the course facilitator and she will send you a new one. It is also possible to make a PDF version of a certificate and send it via e-mail as a signed attachment that you can print out.
