Free TechSoup Webinar: Winning Grants

Grants can support the changing needs in your community while your budget is flat or shrinking and provide many benefits (in addition to funding!). Wish you knew more about applying for grants? Does it seem overwhelming and you wonder how to get started? This webinar will be easy to understand, motivating, and full of valuable tips.

TechSoup Grant Series Week Three: Develop the Grant Project

Last week in our TechSoup Grant Series: One Hour a Week to Success!, you examined your strategic plan and needs assessments, identified a need in your community, and began to brainstorm project ideas.

TechSoup Grant Series Week Two: Focus on Priorities and Needs

LGrant Cycleast week, in the first step of our TechSoup Grant Series: One Hour a Week to Success!, we covered how to prepare for grant work by: scheduling time, understanding the benefits and requirements of grant work, getting leadership on board, and finding help through volunteers and supporters to form a grant team.

This week you will:

  1. Focus on priorities and determine needs by: examining strategic plans, assessments, or other tools available to you.
  2. Brainstorm grant project ideas that will really make a difference.

With thorough planning, your grant proposal will be much stronger than other applicants, your grant project will accomplish more and you will fulfill a community need. It is very important to plan your grant project before you write the proposal. Focus on improving the lives of the people you serve, not just getting the money.
