Introduction to Finding Grants

Tuesday, August 08, 2017 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm 
In-person | New York, NY

Are you looking for grants? Discover what funders want in nonprofits seeking grants (It may surprise you) and how to find potential funders.  

You will learn the 10 most important things you need to know about finding grants including:

  • Who funds nonprofits and what are their motivations.
  • What do funders really want to know about the organizations they are interested in funding.
  • How do you identify potential funders and make the first approach.

An optional 30 minutes will be provided after class for guided online grant research.  It is advisable, but not necessary, to bring a laptop/tablet for this portion of the class.

Space is limited. Register online below or in person.  If you can’t make this class or want to refer a friend or colleague, see other Introduction to Finding Grants class dates here.

If you are a representative of an international NGO or a U.S.-based nonprofit with international programs, you may be interested in taking Grantseeking Basics for International Organizations.

Registrants requiring disability-related services are asked to contact Foundation Center by calling (212) 620-4230.  Please allow at least two weeks advance notice so that we may best accommodate your request.

Please arrive on time or your seat may be given away to others who are waiting to attend. The location is wheelchair accessible.
