Are you new to the field of grantseeking, or do you feel you could improve your techniques for finding foundation grants? We're longtime Candid training experts: ask us anything!

In this deconstructed answer to our traditional Introduction to Finding Grants class, come with whatever is on your mind related to the world of foundation funding, such as:

  • What are funders looking for?
  • What are they NOT looking for?
  • How do you identify the right foundations to approach, and how do you know when the time is ripe to reach out to them?
  • How do you make a good first impression?

This will not be our typical structured presentation; Powerpoint will be kept to a minimum! Instead, bring any and all of your grantseeking questions and we will do our best to answer as many of your questions as we can during this informal conversational session.

Intended audience

  • Beginner
  • Fundraising & development staff
  • Grant writers
