Finding Grant Funding For Community Nonprofits

Monday December 12, 2011: 10:30 am to 12:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

Looking to up your grant-seeking skills for your community nonprofit organization? Join us for this workshop - which has been so popular that we are offering it for a third time - in a lecture format with plenty of available seating.

This overview of online resources can assist you in getting operating and programmatic grants for your nonprofit. These resources (available freely to the public at any University Library building) list and describe thousands of current funding opportunities.

Karen Downing, the Foundations and Grants Librarian at the University of Michigan, will discuss and demonstrate the various web-based funding databases currently available. She will illustrate search strategies and discuss how to match sponsor and nonprofit priorities. Resources to help with proposal writing will also be addressed in this informative session.

There is no registration for this event - which will have plenty of seating for all!
