Finding the right funders is the first step to winning the award. The second is to vet them thoroughly so you can craft the right story.
We’ll show you a highly effective approach to Google and Bing searches that goes beyond finding the obvious sponsors. You’ll use it to identify potential competitors and collaborators, design impactful projects, and discover sponsors you wouldn’t otherwise consider. It will also generate the right keywords for searching the portal sites.
Next, we’ll show you advanced techniques for the two most-used portals:
o how to use filters to cut through the mess of grants.gov
o how to use Foundation Center searches to go straight to the right sponsors.
Finally, we’ll show you how to vet those funders so you can design a winning proposal. You’ll learn how to determine how much money to request, what activities to include or exclude, how to find and recruit champions.
The two-hour webinar includes a one-month professional subscription to the Foundation Center’s online search portal (valued at $200).
