In these difficult economic times, I remain committed to assisting non-profit organizations with information and resources about funding opportunities.
To provide local non-profits with a better understanding of how to research available funding sources, I am hosting two half-day grant seminars in Philadelphia and Blue Bell next week.
The seminars, entitled “Government, Corporate, and Foundation Research,” are targeted to staff, board members, and volunteers of local non-profits, as well as to those seeking to start non-profits.
These seminars will help organizations how to navigate the federal grants system, which offers more than 1,000 grant programs and access to approximately $500 billion in annual awards.
The agenda also includes a comprehensive overview of navigating federal search engines, conducting foundation and corporate research, tailoring proposals to specific funding sources, and an introduction to local Foundation Centers’ resources.
The event is free and open to the public. The seminars will provide the same content, but are held in two different locations to better serve individuals.
