Live Webinar Description

** Please note, this webinar is intended for USA nonprofits only. **

Do you have a plan for identifying grant opportunities to apply to, or for researching potential grant funders? A systematic approach to both will yield winning results. 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. In addition, understanding the type of grant maker you are applying to will heavily impact the application and funding process.

Participating in "Grant Writing 102: How to Effectively Research Grant Funders to Ensure You Win the Grant!" will strengthen your initial grant funder relationship building efforts and ultimately your grant funding success.

In this live, interactive webinar 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.
