  • Councilman James Sanders, Jr. teamed up with the United Way of New York City to sponsor a grant-writing seminar for faith-based groups and nonprofits at The Community Church of the Nazarene in Far Rockaway on the afternoon of March 3.
  • “We want to give people the tools to be proactive,” Sanders told The Wave, who said that he wants to help people solve problems [for themselves].

Those who attended also took part in several exercises throughout the almost two-hour training.

    The two most important elements of a grant proposal is the cover letter and the summary Wartels said.

    “The cover letter is the first thing they read,” said Wartels. “The summary identifies [specific] needs and what to expect.”

    The introduction is also important because it gives an overview of the organization applying for the grant.

    Wartels also described the many components – in addition to the cover letter, the summary and the introduction – that make up a good proposal. Included in these components are the objectives and the budget.

    Sanders told The Wave that upcoming training in business, for youth and the elderly will soon be scheduled.
