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 let you know the best websites and databases that are critical to finding the right grantmaker for your organization.  A primary focus of the workshop are the key resources (books, websites, and databases) that will be essential to getting a “yes” to your grant proposal.
