“Introduction to Finding Grants” Rescheduled for September

NOTICE: Due to snow the session in Oak Harbor was cancelled last February. It has now been rescheduled for Saturday, September 14, 10:00 – 2:00. Please follow the links below to register for this rescheduled event.

Whidbey Community Foundation is partnering with Sno-Isle Libraries to provide free training for nonprofits.  Introduction to Finding Grants will be presented at Oak Harbor Library on 9/14/19. Refreshments will be included. Preregistration is required as space is limited.

Attendees will be shown how to use Library resources to find potential funders and discover what they are looking for in nonprofits seeking grants.  The course will introduce the 10 most important things you need to know about finding grants, including:

  • Who funds nonprofits and their motivations.
  • What funders really want to know about the organizations they are interested in funding.
  • How to identify potential funders and make the first approach.

The Foundation Directory Online resource will be introduced, which provides detailed information on more than 11 million grants from 140,000 foundation and corporate grant makers. Following the class there will be an opportunity for hands-on online grant research. It is advisable, but not necessary, to bring a laptop/tablet for this portion of the training session.
