Grants are always a hot topic. How can we write them, when do we find the time, what about all the other work we must do?
In under two hours, you will learn how to research, prepare, write and apply for grants. At the end of this session you will target and learn how to organize grants to further the mission.
Don’t worry if you don’t have access to the fancy (and expensive) various grant databases. We’ll show you how to access this information – for free! Learn how to filter through 990’s, how to uncover names, and how to get around that ‘invite only' issue when determining fit.
We will also work on systematizing the process of grants, so you don’t have to redo every time.
Come ready to take notes, bring your laptop, and you will leave with a package of information that will help you prepare for grants – and fund your mission.
