Does it feel like researching to identify new grant funders for your organization is like looking for a needle in a haystack or a diamond in the rough?
Researching potential grant funders is a critical step in the grant development process. Having a solid understanding of a potential grant funder’s funding history, current priorities, and application and funding process are critical to winning a grant.
Grant funder research involves a great deal more than contact information and deadlines. It includes understanding funding trends, priority interests, types of support provided and geographic focus. It includes understanding the type of grant maker, if they allow or encourage contact prior to applying, and who is on their board or decision-making committee.
Participating in “Finding a Needle in a Haystack: How to Successfully Research Grants” will strengthen your initial grant funder relationship building efforts and ultimately your grant funding success.
In this instant-access webinar video, we will discuss how to best use the most common paid databases utilized by US based nonprofits for foundation research and integrate that research with free research tools in order to draft an initial grant strategy. We will use proven tools and strategies to successfully compile the multitude of information and documents collected during the research process in order to create a prioritized proactive grant seeking strategy.
