You will learn the 10 most important things you need to know about finding grants, including:
- Who funds nonprofits and their motivations.
- What funders really want to know about the organizations they are interested in funding.
- How to identify potential funders and make the first approach.
We will also explore the Foundation Directory Online resource to find prospective funders for your nonprofit, with detailed information on more than 11 million grants from 140,000 foundation and corporate grant makers.
Following the class there will be an opportunity for hands-on online grant research. It is advisable, but not necessary, to bring a laptop/tablet for this portion of the class.
This program is made possible with support from the Whidbey Community Foundation.
