“Identifying grant funders can be daunting and overwhelming, but with an understanding of the research process and equipped with the necessary tools for success, you can uncover the right funders for the right projects at the right time.”
Identifying potential grant funders is the first and one of the most crucial steps in the grant writing process. Success in this area can make or break your grant writing efforts. However, it is difficult to identify funders using Google search and understand whether or not they might be interested in your organization and in your specific project.
In this webinar by expert speaker Debbie DiVirgilio, you will learn how to identify funders that “fit,” and how to develop a plan that leads to funding success. Know how to do online research using the right keywords, geographic regions and areas of focus. Also learn creative strategies to research and uncover additional potential funders.
The session will explain you how to determine whether or not a funder is a good fit for your project or organization and how to make a lasting impression on funders. Additionally, you’ll learn the secrets of identifying potential funders and receive a worksheet template that can be used during the research process to capture the most pertinent information.
