Grant Supremacy: The Art of Proposal Writing and Grantsmanship

With Linda Jackson Sowell '73

Wednesday, May 22, 2024


Securing grants enables organizations to better serve their communities, ensures consistent funding, and builds credibility...but what is the secret to securing the elusive grant? Our classmate and professional grant writer Linda Jackson Sowell can provide some answers.

During this webinar, Linda will focus on the requirements of a well-prepared grant-seeker, the structure of a grant proposal, the process--relationship building with potential funders ( cultivation, solicitation, stewardship) as well as the communities served, and on how to build a win-win structure between grantmaker and grant recipient for various types of grants.

Linda Jackson Sowell, A.B. '73, MPH '76, is a graduate of Harvard College, and Harvard Chan School of Public Health in Health Policy and Management.

Linda provides grant-seeking, strategic planning and presentations that promote philanthropy, grantsmanship and wellness/health advocacy as Principal of Abyssinia Group Consulting. She also reviews proposals for federal and state grant programs.

Management roles throughout her career in health care administration, non-profit organizations and university settings have consistently involved responsibility for central office corporate, foundation and government fundraising and institutional advocacy.

She has served as Chair of the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) National Corporate & Foundation Relations Annual Meeting; Chair, Grants Committee for the Second Chance Trust Fund, Ohio Department of Public Health; and as member of the Friends of the African American Philanthropy Committee of the Cleveland Foundation.
