Finding Grant Funding For Community Nonprofits

Wednesday March 20, 2013: 10:30 am to 12:00 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 in the past that we are once again offering it 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 you will have time to look for funding for your organization. Additionally, there will be discussion about matching sponsor and nonprofit priorities, and resources to help with proposal writing.

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