Are you looking for funding for your democracy and civic engagement work? Join us for a tour of the Foundation Funding for U.S. Democracy web portal, a free, publicly available tool which provides grants information on how funders are funding nonprofits working in the democracy space. In this tutorial, we will walk through how you can identify funders who may be interested in supporting work related to campaigns and elections, improving voter access and civic participation, and other democracy-related issues in the U.S. 

 You’ll also learn how to use the tool to discover funders working in your region or who are already working with your peers. 

Thanks to the generous support of the Hewlett Foundation, Candid is offering this webinar free and open to the public.
