Survey of funding environment; how to identify foundations, corporation and government funding sources, write proposals, and evaluate proposals.

There are three changes being made to the course: adjusting the course number to a 500 level course so that it is taught for a grade rather than S/U; adjusting the course credit from 1 credit hour to 3; and, correcting the grammar error in the title of the course. Within the MPA program, all of our regular offerings are 500 level. This course remains the one hold out. Adjusting the course in this way puts it in line with the rest of the program. The justification for adjusting the course from a 1 hour to a 3 hour course is two fold. First, in a one hour course students felt that they did not receive the time and dedication to writing grants that they needed to succeed in this area. Also, a number of employers of our graduates noted that they wished our students had more of a skill set in this area. As such, a 3 hour course is necessary to meet the needs of our students and our constituents. The justification for the final change is that grant writing is two words. It has been, however, listed in the system as a single word.

Since Dr. Stewart arrived at NC State, this course has been a part of her regular teaching schedule. It is currently being offered every other year. As the course on the books was 1 hour, it has been taught as a special topics course pending the faculty's decision to make the change permanent. As such, no new resources will be needed.

The objectives of the course are to help students to:


• Be knowledgeable about nonprofit funding purposes (capacity, capital, program, and

operating)

• Understand rationale and access of major sources of funding from individuals,

foundations, corporations, and public entities

• Appreciate organizational capacity necessary to managing major sources of funding

• Be able to implement monitoring and evaluation strategies and techniques


Student Learning Outcomes

1. Evaluate nonprofit funding needs and be able to differentiate among capacity, capital, program, or operating funding needs.

2. Identify and match funding sources, including individuals, foundations, corporations, and public entities to a nonprofit’s funding need.

3. Write core sections of a nonprofit funding grant proposal.

4. Assess organizational capacity necessary to managing major sources of funding.

5. Effectively implement monitoring and evaluation strategies and techniques.

1) There are no prerequisites listed in the CIM form, but there are in the syllabus. If graduate/PBS standing is a prerequisite, add that to the CIM form.
2) The course goals should be listed in the syllabus.

cohen 2/27/2018:
1. Typos: I corrected a few typos in CIM. There are a few on the syllabus as well:
Correct the Student Learning Outcome header to read Student Learning Outcomes.
In the first line, third paragraph under Participation and Engagement, change assignments to assignment.
2. In the section on Attendance and Late Assignments, I can easily imagine that students may need to miss more than one class or may miss a deadline due to hospitalization, a death in the family, etc. Will those types of situations be handled on a case by case basis? If so, I would suggest noting that in the syllabus.
3. I thought this looked like a great course!
