Grant Proposal Writing Workshop for SEs


Following the round table, approximately 50 Social Entrepreneurs will participate in the Grant Proposal Writing Workshop, having obtained a scholarship to attend. A high point of the Workshop will be the Pitch Perfect competition which has a cash prize of $150,000. SEs must fulfill the following criteria in order to be selected for the workshop:

• Receives more than 70% of income from grants and donations
• Places emphasis on collective benefit, social, cultural and environmental value creation
• In existence for at least one year

Interested social enterprises may apply for the scholarship to participate in the Grant Proposal Writing Workshop here.


“Our partnership with the JSE and Sagicor has afforded us to charge a minimal fee at this point as we are aware of the challenges facing our client group,” Miss Veira disclosed. The workshop which would have cost $19,000 per person is now $4,000.00 per person on the premise that each participant applies and qualifies for the scholarship. The deadline for applications is July 22, 2020.

Workshop participants will be given insights to understand the dynamics of proposal writing from the donor’s perspective, learn how to construct strategic proposals for business or development projects and be empowered to write winning proposals.
