Free Foundation Workshop for Fundraisers

Summertime and the funding is easy!

Wish your organization was better at fundraising? Want to know which national foundations match your mission, and how to apply for that grant? Then come to the Henry Madden Library this July for an informative workshop on using the Foundation Directory Online to identify those funding agencies that match the work your organization does.

This workshop is tailored for nonprofit organizations in the Central Valley, especially those seeking a better understanding of how foundations can be an excellent source of funding. The workshop is in two parts:

  1. Understanding the Foundation Directory Online database
  2. Finding freely available information and data on the web to improve grant applications
