Grants Research and Writing
Introduction to Grants Research
The Introduction to Grants Research Workshop introduces you to the world of Philanthropy. You will discover the wealth of opportunity that exists in terms of foundation grants. We will introduce you to the process of grants research and all that it entails. You will learn how to approach the foundations, and most importantly how not to. Learn how to tell your organization’s story for best effect. We will demo several databases (AGM Grant Makers, FC Foundation Directory Online, and Guidestar) that are critical to finding the right grantmaker for your organization. A primary focus of the workshop is to highlight key resources (books, websites, and databases) that will be essential to getting a “yes” to your grant proposal.
