This project is designed to strengthen your synthesis skills by combining parts of information into a new whole (similar to the case study, but towards a different end). In this proposal, you will design a funding strategy that supports resources necessary for both operating and capacity-building needs. Your grant proposal should focus on the mission statement of your chosen nonprofit and the target audience(s) it serves. You should search for a foundation that seeks to fund organizations such as yours that fits with your mission and target audience. Watch out for mission creep; do not seek a grant that is outside your organization's mission and primary objectives. Your paper should also demonstrate comfort in using marketing terminology and concepts, as discussed in our course Topics. You may Google "sample nonprofit grant proposals" for examples or ideas, but as this is a basic proposal, the project description below and our course blog should provide adequate information. Note that a grant proposal is simply another occasion for effective marketing. It should begin with the right mindset, followed by a thorough "listening" to the target audience. In this case, research your chosen foundation and read carefully what it has to say. Do not forget to use Guidestar and The Foundation Center as sources for choosing your foundation. Prior to turning in your final project I will establish a special Grant Proposal Conference and ask you to submit a part of your proposal into this Conference, that way we can begin to understand the process of peer evaluation, commonly used in online learning. Bloom’s for the Grant Proposal: Analyzing – breaking meaning into parts. Applying – using learned material, executing a proposal, employing knowledge in new situations. Organizing – organize and outline content, in this instance, the components of a grant proposal. Multimedia/Social Media: These are sites I think you should be familiar with and suggest the use of these sites towards the assignment. The purpose here is to introduce you to sites you may not be familiar with and to apply them in the context of a specified learning outcome, in this case, your Grant Proposal. Gliffy – create diagrams, flowcharts and org charts http://www.gliffy.com/index-02.php Diigo – coordinate your group efforts electronically https://www.diigo.com/ The components of your ten-page, double-spaced grant proposal should include: title page, your name, class, semester, chosen nonprofit name and table of contents executive summary (why you are seeking this grant, what you are asking for, and expected outcomes should you receive this grant); think of this paragraph in terms of making a first impression and the Foundation's ability to determine the importance of relevant facts. Also what results the Foundation can expect should they choose to fund your proposal. the core of the grant proposal (narrative): cover letter (in business letter format) describing the history of the situation behind the proposal; who has been contacted, if anyone, in the foundation; and the kinds and levels of support being sought. the statement of need, describing the project or set of activities you would like to be funded by the foundation; the project's uniqueness; and why it is important the budget for the project—this should be very basic, simply how the money would be put to use over the course of a year, i.e., your monthly costs); you might make a simple chart, but a paragraph or two about quarterly and annual spending on the program and personnel is sufficient the personnel working on the project, along with very brief resumes—should be a list of no more than three people; if you cannot find bios on your chosen personnel, you may create your own bios (I am interested in you practicing listing this type of information) close with an overview of your organization, the mission statement and how you perceive that it relates to the foundation's funding priorities, use facts here to support your case project bibliography (should include information about your chosen nonprofit and the foundation you are seeking a grant from, such as names, addresses, and a brief description of each organization) —

This week, you will work on the Investment Strategy Case problem on page 398 of your text. Keep in mind the structure of your written report as it is critical. All reports begin with an introduction to the case. In it you outline briefly what the company does, how it developed historically, what problems it is experiencing, and how you are going to approach the issues addressing the questions at the end of the case. Do this sequentially by writing, for example, "First, we discuss the environment of Company X…Third, we discuss Company X’s business-level strategy… Last, we provide recommendations for turning around Company X’s business.” Make sure you use plenty of headings and subheadings to structure your analysis. For example, have separate sections on any important conceptual tool you use. Thus, you might have a section on Porter’s five forces model as part of your analysis of the environment. You might offer a separate section on portfolio techniques when analyzing a company’s corporate strategy. Tailor the sections and subsections to the specific issues of importance in the case. In the third part of the case write-up, present your solutions and recommendations. Be comprehensive, and make sure they are in line with the previous analysis so that the recommendations fit together and move logically from one to the next. The recommendations section is very revealing because it shows how much work you put into the case from the quality of your recommendations. Your paper is to be written in 6th edition APA formatting, and should be no less than 5 pages in length (excluding cover and reference page). Also, you should use at least 2 academic references to support your analysis and critical thinking. I am giving plenty of time to complete the assignment and need this done by Friday Night. Please DO NOT PLAGIARIZE any part of this assignment. Attached is the Case study and the 5 questions that should also be answered in the paper. Start with the Investment Strategy case problem on the bottom of the attachment

This facilitation assignment requires a face-to-face meeting with your selected group of participants. Credit will not be given for use of GME, e-mail or any form of communication other than face-to-face. Group participants should NOT be members of this course. The purpose of this assignment is to apply divergent and convergent techniques learned thus far to a third party's opportunity. Completing the assignment will constitute the service learning element of this course. The focus of the assignment may be an opportunity at your place of employment, a non-profit group, an organized community group, etc. The opportunity selected should not be a personal one such as family members planning a reunion or birthday party. Use the information we have learned to benefit an existing organization. Once your group of 4-10 persons (aged 18 or older) has been identified and is willing to participate, follow the directions below. Select two idea generation tools listed above and/or in the text. One tool should be adaptive and one tool should be innovative in nature. Identify a problem/opportunity statement [in the correct four part form]. Communicate the rules for divergent thinking. Facilitate both tools you selected (individually of course) with this group. Remember to converge, select Hits, Highlight and Prioritize following idea generation. Communicate the rules for convergent thinking prior to moving into convergence. Convergence tip: Count the number of ideas generated and multiply by 10%. Provide "sticky dots" equal to 10% of generated ideas to each member. Instruct members to use their dots to identify ideas they personally consider "hits" (communicate the criteria for a "hit"). Hits can then be moved into categories according to similarity (highlighting) and finally prioritize the categories. E-mail, as a Word attachment, a 2 to 3 page (maximum) paper to me consisting of the following: a) Identify and describe the organization AND individual group members selected as the recipient of your service learning. b) identify your two tool selections. c) explain why you selected those two particular tools. d) discuss the physical setting of the room, participants, etc. e) discuss your experience as a facilitator. f) discuss whether or not you felt the session was productive and why. Use double-spacing, 10-12 font. Note: When you are facilitating a session, your job is to FACILITATE. You must manage the process. You must not offer ideas or in any way become part of the ideation (resource) group. Remember, no judgment either positive or negative should be offered during divergence, e.g., refrain from statements such as, "that's a good idea." This assignment must be completed and sent by Blackboard email to me by midnight, of the due date located in the course syllabus.CT
