Grant writers can improve skills at February workshops

Grant writers who want to improve their skills are encouraged to sign up for a special workshop that will be offered twice by the Continuing Education Center at Georgia Southern University.

‘Successful Grant Writing” will be held on Thursday, Feb. 14, at the Coastal Georgia Center in Savannah, and again on Friday, Feb. 15, at the Nessmith-Lane Continuing Education Building on the Georgia Southern campus in Statesboro. Both workshops will run from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

Led by instructor Illene Roggensack, participants will learn effective methods to find and develop relationships with funders, write proposals and manage grant funding.

The workshop will also cover trends in grant making and how grants fit into an overall fundraising strategy. In addition, each participant will receive one-on-one feedback on their own proposal writing and research efforts.

Roggensack has more than 20 years of experience as an executive director, fundraising director, board member, volunteer and consultant. She has raised tens of millions of dollars working with governmental, foundation and corporate funding sources.

Recognized as a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE), Roggensack holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a master’s degree in business.

The fee for each workshop is $179 per person. The fee includes lunch and refreshments.

To register for either workshop, visit or call (912) 681-5993.
