Grant Writing 102: How to Effectively Research Grants and Grant Funders to Help Ensure You Win the Grant!
Do you have a plan for identifying grant opportunities to apply to, or for researching potential grant funders? A systematic approach to both yields 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.
Viewing “Grant Writing 102: How to Effectively Research Grant Funders to Ensure You Win the Grant!” strengthens your initial grant funder relationship building efforts, and ultimately, your grant funding success.
We cover 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 use proven tools and strategies to successfully compile the information and documents collected, during the research process, to create a prioritized proactive grant seeking strategy.
Viewing “Grant Writing 103: How to Establish and Maintain Excellent Grant Funder Relationships!” strengthens preliminary relationship-building efforts, maintenance of existing relationships, and ultimately, your grant funding success. Relationships are a critical component of the grant seeking process, but are often overlooked. It is possible for well-written proposals to be funded without first reaching out to a new potential grant funder. The success rates though, are significantly higher for those who establish a relationship prior to submission.
During this webinar recording, we discuss how to establish and maintain relationships with grant funders in order to sustain and increase your organization’s grant revenue. We explore unique success stories from several nonprofits.
