Meeting Description:

 Grants can support the changing needs in your community while your budget is flat or shrinking and provide many benefits (in addition to funding!). Wish you knew more about applying for grants? Does it seem overwhelming and you wonder how to get started? This webinar will be easy to understand, motivating, and full of valuable tips.

Discover the confidence and knowledge to win grants, find out the best method for writing grant proposals, and learn all the steps to successful grant work. Stephanie Gerding will share practical advice, easy grants for beginners, and valuable worksheets and resource lists. We’ll also learn about free resources for finding funding opportunities and valuable discounted software products to aid your grant work. Discover how to develop a compelling case for technology grants. You’ll be excited, motivated, and ready with the knowledge needed to apply the basic process of grant work.
