A strong grant request is one that is well-prepared, thoughtfully planned and concisely packaged. During the third week of each month, we offer workshops focused on grant-seeking skills that will be useful when applying for grants from the Community Foundation’s Bright Idea Fund or donor-directed funds with application processes.
We strongly suggest that you attend a “Navigating Your Community Foundation & Charting a Course for Grantseeking” session prior to attending a workshop. The next session will be held Oct. 3. Dates in 2018 to be determined.
